The.MSC file extension is used to store Microsoft Management Console files. These are usually associated with the Computer Management tool found in Control Panel. If you want to use the commands within the console, you must run it as administrator. There are three ways to do this.
1. Open the Command Prompt window as an administrator. Then type “cmd /K net user /active:” followed by your username. This will launch the command prompt as an administrator.
2. Use Windows PowerShell. Type “powershell -c ‘net user /active:'”. This will launch the powershell as an administrator.
3. Create a shortcut on your desktop. Right-click anywhere on the desktop and select New Shortcut. In the Target box, enter “cmd /K netuser /active:” and press OK. Click Apply and close the dialog box. Now you can double-click the shortcut to open the command prompt as an adminstrator, just like above.
Microsoft Management Console (MSMC) is used to manage Windows Server operating systems remotely. However, it requires administrator rights to run properly. If you are trying to use MSMC without administrative access, follow these steps to do so.
1. Type cmd into the box and press Enter.
2. At the prompt, type “runas /user:” followed by the username of the account you want to log onto. For example, if I wanted to run MSMC as my regular user account, I would type “runas /u:myusername”.
4. Press Enter twice.
5. You’ll see a dialog asking whether you want to continue running the program as another user. Select Yes.
6. A new window opens up where you can enter commands.
To access.MSC files you must have administrative rights on Windows 10. You can do this by opening the Start menu and typing “administrator”. This opens up the Control Panel where you can change settings like your account name and password. Once you are logged into your account, open File Explorer and go to the Tools tab. Click on Folder Options and select View Tab. Under Advanced Settings check the box next to Show hidden items. Now you can see all the folders and files on your computer. If you want to delete one of those files, simply rightclick it and choose Delete.
Shortcuts allow you to launch applications without having to open up the Start menu. You can create shortcuts on your desktop to easily launch programs with administrative rights. This article explains how to do it.
To run a Group Policy Editor (GPE) as administrator, type inccmd in the Run dialog box. Type gpedit.mscloac in the Command Prompt window and press Enter. This will open the Group Policy Editor with administrative privileges.
When running GPEDIT as an Administrator, you must always remember that you are working with system files and that closing the program properly is important. If you forget to do so, you could corrupt your computer.
To run services.msc as administrator, you must use the incommand prompt. First, open the command prompt window by pressing WIN + X and typing cmd into the Search box.

Now, type “incmd” followed by the name of the file you want to start. For example, if you wanted to start the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, you’d type “incmd sqlservr.exe”. If you’re running Windows 8/8.1, you might try “start /run incmd sqlservr.exewin8.com”.
If you’re running Windows 7, you could try “start /run cmd /k incmd sqlservr”.
To run Diskmgmt.mSc as administrator, type incmd diskmgmt.mSc into the command prompt. If you are prompted for an administrative password, enter it. Then press Enter.

To run the Computer Management Console (CMC) with administrative rights, type “cmd /k incmgr” into a Command Prompt window. This opens the console with elevated privileges. If you are prompted for confirmation, press Enter.
