Save changes to compmgmt.msc on Windows 7
Posted on 2011-03-14
Does anyone know how to save changes to an original msc in Windows 7? In Windows XP I could right click on the msc (compmgmt.msc for example) and select Author, then I could go in make my changes and save the file. In Windows 7 I can open the msc in Author mode but Save is greyed out.
I've tried taking ownership and giving myself full control of the msc I want to edit, but even after I've done save is still greyed out when I open in Author mode. I've read a post somewhere that you have to "Run as Administrator" to save it, but how do I run it as administrator into author mode. I'm not even sure that's the correct answer.
I would love an answer to this if anyone has figured it out because constantly sizing the windows is getting extremely annoying.
