Computer Management overview

Computer Management is a collection of administrative tools that you can use to manage a single local or remote computer. It combines several administrative utilities into a console tree, and it provides easy access to administrative properties and tools.

You can use Computer Management to:

  • Monitor system events, such as logon times and application errors.

  • Create and manage shared resources.

  • View a list of users who are connected to a local or remote computer.

  • Start and stop system services, such as Task Scheduler and Indexing Service.

  • Set properties for storage devices.

  • View device configurations and add new device drivers.

  • Manage applications and services.

Computer Management contains three items: System Tools, Storage, and Services and Applications. For more information, see:


  • If you are not a member of the Administrators group, you may not have the administrative credentials required to view or modify some properties or to perform some tasks that Computer Management hosts.
