      The first time I installed server, i made a user account for myself instead of using the default admin account. As time went on, this was a bit too restrictive for me, so I made myself an admin account.

      This time (just installed x64), i’m using the admin account all the time.

      Background info out of the way, simple question that I couldn’t find the answer to on the search –

      How do i stop the server management console from opening on startup?

        I watched which registry keys change when checking/unchecking the Do not show me this console at logon checkbox and it turns out that it changes the key:


        If the DWORD value DoNotOpenServerManagerAtLogon is set to 0, the Server Manager will open at startup; if set to 1, you won’t see it!

        Hope this works for you! 😉

        I don’t have that registry value, I guess i can just add it?

        It is ticked, it still appears 🙂

        Do you think i would post here if it was that simple? 😀

          Haha 😉 Maybe it works when you also set (add?) the DWORD DoNotOpenServerManagerAtLogon to 1 in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftServerManager. It is possible that this key is overriding the HKCU key…

          Thanks Arris, that worked! 🙂

            No problem, it was a guess. I’m glad for you it works! 🙂
