Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To hide or display features of a saved MMC console

  1. Open a saved console.

  2. On the View menu, click Customize.

  3. Under MMC, do the following:

    • To display or hide the console tree, select or clear the Console tree check box.

    • To display or hide the Action and View menus, select or clear the Standard menus (Action and View) check box.

    • To display or hide the console toolbar, select or clear the Standard toolbar check box.

    • To display or hide the status bar at the bottom of the console window, select or clear the Status bar check box.

    • To display or hide the description bar along the top of the details pane, select or clear Description bar.

    • To display or hide the tabs along the bottom of the details pane, select or clear the Taskpad navigation tabs check box.

Important

  • If you clear the Standard menus (Action and View) check box and close the Customize View dialog box, you cannot access commands on the Action and View menus, including the Customize command. In this situation, to access the Customize View dialog box, click the system menu (the icon in the upper-left corner of the console), and then click Customize View.

Notes

  • To open a saved console in author mode, right-click the .msc file and then click Author.

  • Click Start, click Run, and then type mmc path\filename.msc /a.

  • As you select or clear check boxes, view the console to confirm that the changes you make are what you expected.

  • If you hide the Console tree, the Favorites menu, if applicable, will still be visible on the menu bar.

  • Displaying or hiding the tabs along the bottom of the details pane can also be done from any pre-existing taskpad view. Select Action from the menu, click Edit taskpad view, select or deselect the Hide Standard tab check box, and then click OK.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
