left and I can select which one it is that I need, and then use the Add button to add it over here. When I do, that particular Snap-in will be displayed in the Management Console. For example, if I wanted to manage my Windows logs, I could come over here to Event Viewer and click Add. Now it does prompt us as to whether we want to view Event Logs on the Local computer, or some other Windows computer somewhere else in the network. For our purposes today, we're only concerned about managing Event Logs on the Local computer, so I'll leave the default selection marked, and click OK, and when I do, Event Viewer is added over here under Selected Snap-ins. Let's add some more Snap-ins. For example, let's add Device Manager, which we use to manage the hardware devices that are installed in the system, and once again, we're only focused on managing the local hardware so we'll just leave the default Local computer option selected and click Finish. Let's suppose we also need to manage hard disks and their partitions on this system, I'll click on Disk Management, click on Add, and again, we're only focused on managing the storage devices on the Local computer, so I'll hit Finish. Let's also suppose we want to manage the Print Server running on this system, I'll click on Print Management, click on Add, and we have to specify which Print Server it is we want to manage, we just want the Local one. So I'll click Add the Local Server and then click Finish, and then finally, let's use the Local Users and Groups Snap-in so that we can manage User Accounts and Group Accounts on the local system. Add that as well, and again, we're only focused on managing accounts on the Local computer. Hit Finish, and at this point, I've added all of the Snap-ins that I want to use in the MMC console, so I'll go ahead and click OK, and notice when I do, that each one of these Snap-ins is displayed over here on the left. This is called the Tree View. The Tree View shows each individual Snap-in and if we pick one, and expand it, such as Local Users and Groups over here, it shows us the options that we have for that particular Snap-in. In this case, we're looking at the Local Users and Groups Snap-ins, and hence, we can manage either Users or Groups, and if I click on the Snap-in itself, you can see under Name that the same information that we saw underneath the Snap-in is displayed over here in the middle pane. Now, understand that the contents of this middle pane will change depending upon what I've selected over here on the left. For example, if I come down here and click Users, then the information associated with this particular object on the left is displayed over here in the middle pane. In this example, we have all the currently configured User Accounts on the system. Now, I also want you to notice that when I select an object over here, that the information over here in the Action plane changes to reflect what it is I can do with that particular object. For example, if I were to select the rtracy User Account over here, notice that under Actions, I have a More Actions option displayed under the rtracy User Account. If I click on this arrow right here, I can see a list of Actions that are available. I can set

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
