• Display the console tree if it's not already visible.

• Add or remove snap-ins, folders, and, if appropriate, extensions (modules that extend the functionality of snap-ins)

• Add taskpad views (customized pages that appear within the details pane of a snap-in), if appropriate

• Manipulate windows and other display elements to taste .

• Add items to the Favorites menu if appropriate .

• Name the console and choose an icon for it.

• Choose Author mode or one of the three User modes, and further restrict user options if appropriate
