  • Hi.

    In order to view the Administrative tools in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you will need to perform the following steps:

    • Switch to the tile view in Windows 8/8.1.
    • Bring up the right-side Charms menu by clicking <Windows key - I>.
    • Click Tiles.
    • Move the slider over to the right to Show administrative tools.
    • Click somewhere on the left side of the screen to left the Charms menu collapse.
    • If you need to launch an app (such as IIS Manager), just starting typing its name while in the Tile view to automatically search for the shortcut.

    NOTE - You cannot show Administrative Tools in the desktop view.
