The Microsoft Management Console (MMC) is a Windows component and desktop application that hosts so-called snap-ins that provide an interface for configuring and monitoring the system. Most of the administration tools under Microsoft Windows are implemented as MMC snap-ins (*.msc files), including the Device Manager (Devmgmt.msc), the Service Control Manager (Services.msc), and the Event Viewer (eventvwr.msc).
