Windows 10: Why Can’t I Launch MMC?

KB ID 0001391


Usually if I’m in Windows I’m on a server, and if I need a Microsoft Management Console, I simply type mmc, and away we go. On my new work Windows 10 laptop, when I do that and this happens;

No MMC Windows 10


I’ve also always assumed it was mmc.msc, but a search round on my laptop discovered that, (on Windows 10 anyway) it’s an exe file.

So if you search for that it works?

MMC Windows 10

You can still launch it straight from the run box (Windows Key+R) though?

MMC Windows Run

And you can still launch it straight form command line, using mmc or mmc.exe
