Add-In: Advanced Admin Console

Advanced Admin Console

This is an add-In intended for advanced users that allows you to administer and have full control over your Home Server at any time. It allows to jump to the following areas of your Home Server within the Home Server Console:

  • Control Panel
  • Printers and Faxes
  • Administrative Tools
  • Start Menu
  • “My Computer” (Which really should be called “My Server” on Windows Server SKUs)
  • My Network Places
  • Workgroup
  • Network Connections

You can also launch a Command Prompt, PowerShell (if installed), Task Manager and Registry Editor from the add-in menu as well. Thus, it is unnecessary for the majority of administrative tasks to connect to your Home Server via Remote Desktop.

More info and the download are available from Andreas’ Space.
