I am obviously stupid... because I'm logged into this Windows 2003 Server box as administrator, yet when I go under Administrative Tools, I can't find "Terminal Services Manager". Terminal Services are installed... I'm using them right now... and I know that's where the manager is supposed to be... yet it is not

what am I missing? why isn't it showing? where else can I find it?

Who else connects to this box? In the past where I work some of my coworkers actually moved the Link for the Terminal services Manger when they were attempting to create a shortcut to the console on their desktop or quick-launch.

You should always just be able to run

%SystemRoot%\system32\tsadmin.exe directly.

    +1, this was freakin' annoying. Coworkers deserve a beat-down for doing this sort of thing! – Moose Oct 5 '09 at 21:35
  • +1 to Moose for eluding to a weekly occurrence in my old dept (the beat-down that is) – squillman Oct 5 '09 at 22:51
  • Oh yeah, and to Zoredache for the answer :) – squillman Oct 5 '09 at 22:51
  • Of course I think Microsoft deserves part of the blame for making it so easy for people to accidentally remove stuff from that location. – Zoredache Oct 5 '09 at 22:55

    @Zoredache, What's the equivalent of tsadmin.exe on Server 2012? – Pacerier Mar 13 '15 at 16:34

Have your tried tsadmin on the command line? If this works, just create a new shortcut...

  • sorry... I just found that the link was actually moved by someone else... and that's pretty much exactly what Zoredache said... so he is more technically correct... – Nick Franceschina Oct 5 '09 at 22:12

More specifically you should see it showing up in the start menu under a folder called "Terminal Services" that is inside the folder "Administrator Tools" that is inside the Control Panel list... that is the normal place you'd find it.

Go to Run and type tscc.msc, then click OK.
