Display Administrative Tools on the Windows 7 Start Menu

Administrators can get quick and easy access to their tools on the Start Menu.

The Administrative Tools menu is not displayed on the Start Menu by default in Windows 7. But you can add it to the main Start Menu area and/or under All Programs. This is great for administrators, giving them quick and easy access to the main tools.

To enable the menu: right-click the Start Menu, select Properties, select the Start Menu tab, and click the Customize button. Then scroll down near the bottom and find the System Administrative Tools entry.
