Same issue with the loss of access to 'Manage' function via right click on 'Computer' desktop icon ... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I've tried almost all of the 'fixes' that appear to be floating around in the ether on the 'Net regarding this issue of the loss of the right click access to the Manage function from the Computer icon on the desktop in Windows 7.

    When I try to access the function I get a popup window with an error message:

    Not sure how on earth to go about resolving this, but it's a real pain !! Any assistance would be really helpful.

    Many thanks

  • Go to C:\Windows\System32

    find the compmgmt

    right click the compmgmt and choose create shortcut

    Cut (Ctrl-X) the shortcut and Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools

    Paste the compmgmt shortcut and rename as Computer Management (no need to add .lnk extension)

  • Go to Run --> Type compmgmt.msc --> Enter

    Does this works?
