To add an extension snap-in to an MMC console

  1. Open a saved console in author mode by doing one of the following:

    • Right-click the .msc file, and then click Author.

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

  2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in, and then click the item that you want to extend.

  3. On the Extensions tab, in Available extensions, select the check box next to the extension you want to add, and then click OK.


  • To add every extension available for a given item, on the Extensions tab, select the Add all extensions check box. To add only certain extensions, clear this check box.

  • You can also use this procedure to remove extensions from a console by clearing the check box for an extension that was previously selected.
