Q. I've installed the Windows 7 version of the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT), but none of the management tools are displayed under Administrative Tools. How do I make them show up?

A. Once you've installed RSAT on Windows 7, you need to enable the particular management tools you want exposed. You enable the tools in the Programs and Features Control Panel applet by clicking Turn Windows features on or off link. The applet will show all the Windows optional features. Scroll down to Remote Server Administration Tools and enable the management tools you need, as shown here.
