In its newest operating system Windows Vista, Microsoft is introducing a new version of the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) tool, which as you know provides you with a shell into which you can insert various tools called snap-ins. Version 3.0 of MMC tool provides more functionality for snap-ins than prior versions and sports a smoother looking user interface that makes it much easier to create as well as use consoles. The Action Pane on the right side of the console is a new area that displays a list of actions, or commands, that are associated with a selected snap-in.
