Rooting console windows on items in the console tree

While you can use MMC to make consoles that meet every administrative need for a group, you can also design simple consoles for less experienced users. For instance, after you add items to a console tree, open additional console windows rooted on any item in the console tree. Use this method to create console windows that display specific administrative components of the console tree. Then close windows that show portions of the console tree that users do not need.

Closing a window does not remove any items from the console tree; when you close a window, you remove only that view of the console tree. The entire tree is still saved when you save the console, and you can always view the console root.

For information about changing the console root, see Make a new console window from part of an MMC console tree.

For information about viewing a console root that is hidden, see Make a new console window from an MMC console.
