TPM Management is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. You can run TPM Management as a stand-alone console or add it to any MMC.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

Add the TPM Management snap-in to MMC
  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Run.

  2. In the Open box, type mmc, and press ENTER.

  3. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Yes.

  4. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  5. In the Available snap-ins list, click TPM Management, and then click Add.

  6. In the Select Computer dialog box, click Local computer.


    You can also use this method to manage the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) on a remote computer.

  7. Click OK, and then click OK again.

Additional considerations

  • Depending on the configuration of your computer, the User Account Control prompt may appear. It will not appear if you are logged on with the built-in Administrator account (the local Administrator account is disabled by default in this version of Windows).

  • If User Account Control is enabled, it can be configured to allow non-administrators to enter the credentials of an administrator to complete administrative tasks without being a member of the Administrators group.

  • By default, members of the local Administrators group have sufficient rights and privileges to complete this task. In your environment, security may be managed such that non-administrators have additional rights.
