Windows 7 contains a suite of powerful Administrative Tools that are useful to System Administrators and advanced users. Previous versions of Windows had a direct link to these Administrative tools right on the Start menu, but Windows 7 has them hidden from view by default.
These tools are easily found if you know where to look (most people don’t) or by simply searching for them by name via the Search box, but I prefer having them linked from the Start menu as they had been in the past.
It’s very easy to add the Administrative Tools back to the Windows 7 Start menu. Here’s how:
1 – Right-click on the Start Orb, and then click Properties.
2 – Click Customize, then scroll down the list of items until you can find the System Administrative Tools section.
3 – Select Display On The All Programs Menu.
4 – Click Ok, then click Ok again.
This page lists the various Administrative Tools along with a short explanation of what they do.
