You can use Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to create a
custom console (or administrative tool) to hold a snap-in that you use to
manage a computer. Administrators typically create custom MMC consoles to
enable them to modify commonly used Group Policy settings or other objects. You
can use a custom MMC console to find and change (or disable) the Group Policy
settings easily. This step-by-step article describes how to create and save a
custom MMC console in Windows XP.
How to Create a New Console by Using MMC
- Click Start, click Run, type mmc in the Open box, and then click OK.
- Click Add/Remove Snap-in on the File menu.
- Click Add.
- Double-click the snap-in that you want to add, and then
follow the instructions in the wizard that starts.

Consoles that you create by using MMC are stored in
the Documents and Settings\User_name\Start
Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools folder by default.

snap-ins in the Administrative Tools folder on the Programs menu for the user.
If a wizard does not start after you click the snap-in that you
want to add to the custom console, you can only add the snap-in to the local
computer. If a wizard starts and prompts you to add the snap-in to a remote
computer, either type the name of the computer or click Browse
to locate the computer. Group Policy starts a wizard that you can
use to apply the policy to remote computers.
