Do not start Server Manager automatically at Logon – Windows Server 2012

less than 1 minute read

After the installation of the new Windows Server version (Windows Server 2012 RC) it was annoying for me that the “Server Manager” started every time when I logged in to the machine.

In Windows Server 2008 R2 you could disable the auto start option from the home screen.Server-Manager---Manage-Menu I started searching for the option but couldn’t find it. After half an hour  I found the solution:

  1. Open the “Server Manager”.
  2. Select “Manage” on the top bar.
  3. Select “Server Manager Properties” from the drop down menu.
  4. Select the option “Do not start Server Manager automatically at logon”.
