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 rtracy's passwords, I can delete the rtracy account, I can rename it,I can view the properties of the rtracy account, and here, I can change the full name of the User Account, I could change the description, I can specify whether the User is not allowed to change their password, I can disable the account, I can enable account expiration, all kinds of things. Now if I don't select a particular User Account over here in the middle pane, then my optionsavailable under Actions changes. Notice now that only Users is selected over on the left, and because of that, the options that are available are different, because now I'm not just managing one single User Account, I'm managing all the Users on the system, for example, I could add a new User Account. Let's add a new User named ksanders, full name is Kimberly Sanders. We'll provide a password for Kimberly. We can force Kimberly to change her password the first time she logs on, which is a good idea. Click Create. Close, and notice that I now have another User Account configured on the system for Kimberly Sanders. Now the other Snap-ins we've added over here function in much the same way. Let's look at Disk Management, for example. When I click on Disk Management, I see a list of all the Volumes that have been defined on the system, and in this example, I only have two, I have my (C:) Volume, where Windows is installed, and I have my System Reserved Volume as well. Down below, I can see a list of all the storage devices installed in the system and this system only has one hard disk and it has one optical disk installed. If I had additional hard drives installed, I could, say, add a new partition to that drive to create a new Volume. The important thing to remember about MMC is the fact that it's highly customizable. We can go under File, and then use the Add/Remove Snap-ins option that we saw just a minute ago to add whatever Snap-ins it is that you need and once you're done, you can then Save your current Console. For example, let's suppose that each day, I need to use each of these different Snap-ins to perform my day-to-day work as a system administrator. Well, every time I load MMC, I don't want to have to go through and add each of these individual Snap-ins every single day. To make things easier, what I can do is go ahead and Save my Console definition. Now let's go ahead and put it in Documents and let's name it daytodaywork. That way, I know that this Console is associated with the tasks that I do day-to-day. And now, let's go ahead and close, if I run MMC again, say, I'm coming in tomorrow, and I'm going to go do my day-to-day work, instead

of going through and doing Add/Remove Snap-ins, I can just come down here, and select the MMC Console definition I had saved earlier, click on it, and everything I need is already there.

    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.
