Open MMC Snap-Ins Directly From The Run Line

For the longest time if I wanted to use any of the administrative tools in Windows I would either go into the Control Panel, or I would open MMC from the run line and add each snap-in individually. That is until I discovered that you can run each snap-in on its own directly from the run line. My buddy Karl over at Ask The Admin explains what those commands are:

So Johnny command line needs to be cool and open his computer management console or maybe just his services...

Here you Johnny Command Line:

  • Computer Management - compmgmt.msc
  • Component Services - comexp.msc
  • Disk Managment - diskmgmt.msc
  • Device Manager - devmgmt.msc
  • Disk Defrag - dfrg.msc
  • Event Viewer - eventvwr.msc
  • Group Policies - gpedit.msc
  • Local Security Settings - secpol.msc
  • Local Users and Groups - lusrmgr.msc
  • Performance Monitor - perfmon.msc
  • Resultant Set of Policies - rsop.msc
  • Shared Folders - fsmgmt.msc
  • Services - services.msc

And for the n00bs hit Start---Run---type anyone of these commands (include the .msc extension) and viola... Console Magic
