To create tasks for a taskpad view in a saved 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. In the console tree, click an item associated with the taskpad view; and, on the Action menu, click Edit Taskpad View.

  3. On the Tasks tab, click New.

  4. Follow the instructions in the New Task wizard.


  • If you are creating a new taskpad view and want to add a task, you can start the New Task wizard by selecting the Start New Task wizard check box in the final screen of the New Taskpad View wizard.

  • On the Shortcut Menu Command page of the New Task wizard, in Command source, if you selected Tree item task and cannot view all items in the console tree, you must expand the console tree manually before starting the New Task wizard.

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.
