In the Microsoft Management Console, how do I add a snap-in?

The Microsoft Management Console (MMC) provides a location for you to use administrative tools called snap-ins. Snap-ins allow you to administer computers, services, system components, and networks. To add a snap-in:

Note: If you're using Windows 7, see this information from Microsoft.

  1. Open the MMC. (From the Start menu, select Run.... Then type mmc and click OK.)
  2. From the File menu, select Add/Remove Snap-in.
  3. In the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box, click Add.
  4. In the Add Standalone Snap-in dialog box, click the snap-in you want to add to the console and click Add.
  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 to add additional snap-ins to a single console.
  6. Click Close, and then click OK to use the snap-ins you just added.
