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 menus and toolbars for snap-ins

  1. Open a saved console.

  2. On the View menu, click Customize.

  3. Under Snap-in, do one or more of the following:

    • To display or hide menus specific to snap-ins, select or clear the Menus check box.

    • To display or hide toolbars specific to snap-ins, select or clear the Toolbars check box.


  • To open a saved console in author mode, right-click the .msc file and then click Author. Click Start, then click Run, and type mmc path\filename.msc /a.

  • When you select or clear the Menus and Toolbars check boxes, the menus and toolbars are displayed or hidden for all snap-ins in the console, not just the currently selected snap-in. If toggling the check boxes does not change the view, the currently selected snap-in does not have custom menus or toolbars.

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.
