I do open Computer Management console on a remote computer quite often and wish I knew this simple trick years ago, which would have saved me tons of time.
Here is what I normally do:
Right-click the Start menu and choose Computer Management. Then go to Action and click Connect to another computer…, type in the computer name and connect.
Quite tedious and time-consuming.
Now here is a much faster way:
Create a new file called mg.cmd with the following one-liner and save it in your default %windir% folder.
start compmgmt.msc /computer=%1
Now, whenever you need to open Computer Management console on a remote computer, simply press Win+R and type
That’s much easier and a slick way to open a MMC console connected to a remote computer.
