Hi all.

Was fooling around trying to reomve the "My Network Places" icon off the desktop. To do so i used gpedit.msc. My question is this. What does MSC stand for? Ive done a lil bit of research on the net but so far have not found what im looking for. This is obviously not important but i am curious.

Thanks in advance, Da []D[][]V[][]D

In WIN2000 / XP. Go to Start/Run and type gpedit.msc. It opens the group policy window. For the option to remove "My Network Places" Icon follow User configuration / Administrative Templates / Desktop / Hide My Network Places Icon on Desktop. Hope thats what you were after.

Ok mystery solved. Thanks to some help from Jiggy, i was lead to this.

.msc file
A "Management Saved Console" file that constitutes a tool. After an administrator has assembled a tool using various snap-ins, the administrator can save the tool in an .msc file, which can be opened and used again later. An .msc file can be passed on to another administrator. Any administrator can open the .msc file in MMC, causing the tool to be loaded.

here is the link to the site if interested.
