Performance monitor reliabilty monitor inquiry

How do you get the reliability monitor to show up under the monitoring tools in the Performance Monitor?  Right now I have to right-click on monitoring tools and select 'view system reliability'.  I do not want to right-click.  I see performance monitor but not reliability monitor. This is for a windows server 2008 R2 environment.
I have admin rights on the machine.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello WDS620,

Click Start, click in the Start Search box, type taskschd.msc, and then press ENTER
Task Scheduler window will open, Now expand Microsoft, expand Windows, and then click RAC.
Right-click RAC, point to View, and then either click Show Hidden Tasks, or verify that it is selected.

I will try both of those suggestions - thank you.

Ok I see that I can drag the reliability monitor to he desktop like Merete mentioned - thank you.
When I open the reliability monitor I do not see any Index number yet. In the Task Scheduler I see the task for RacTask. Last run time was Never. Is that the problem - this has never been run so that is why I only get Performance Monitor and I do not see any reliability index number?

If I run the RacTask - how many times does it have to run before I can see results?

Normally it is  configured with the windows installation and maybe setup to run hourly.. you should be able to see the data after that task,
 If the monitor does not show data to you, then you will need to Enable the Data Collection Task.
