If you’re an IT administrator or just a guy who wants to garner as much information as possible from your computer, then you need to grab the Windows System Control Center (WSCC) right now.
WSCC is a toolbox featuring almost 300 mini-applications that, over the years, were developed and perfected by NirSoft and Sysinternals: two of the biggest names in professional administrative tools for Windows.
To get started, head on over to kls-soft.com/wscc, download the application and zip through the installation wizard.
The first time you run WSCC, it’ll hit the web to grab the latest editions of all the Nirsoft and Sisinternals tools.
Click Install and then wait for all the updates to finish. On my computer it took about 15 minutes before everything was ready.
Once it installs you’ll have a myriad of tools accessible through a convenient dashboard.
There’s a lot going on here but if you glance over in the left pane you’ll see they’re all grouped by:
You can also easily search for any tool by typing the name in the search box in the upper right corner of the window
For example to get Process Explorer I simply clicked in the search box and started typing. It automatically filtered the search results with each keystroke.
Incidentally, I wrote a little introduction on using Process Explorer like a Pro so I definitely recommend you check that out too.
You can also add your favorite tools to a convenient list in the upper portion of the left pane. The total number of favorites is displayed in the bottom right corner of the window. You can see I only have 3 favorite right now.
To add a favorite command, in the right pane, right click the command name on the button and choose Add to Favorites from the context menu.
If you’re not sure what a particular tool does click Search Online… Your search engine will pop on the screen with alacrity and you’ll have a good idea what the command can do for you.
