Display Administrative Tools in the Windows 8 Start Screen

To show the "Administrative Tools" in the new Windows 8 (Win 8) Metro/Windows UI screen - do the following:


  1. Firstly bring open the Start screen - this option is not available if you don't.
  2. Once the Start screen is up, show the 'charms' bar (on my PC I move the mouse cursor to the top right corner of the screen to show it - a friend with a touch screen PC simply drags his finger from the right of the screen across towards the left from memory).
  3. Click/press on the settings 'charm' (the cog with 'settings' written under it)
  4. Select/press "Tiles" from the list that appears.
  5. Change the slider that reads "Show administrative tools" across to "Yes"
  6. Click back onto the Start screen (anywhere but on the options area you just modified) and the options  charm screen will vanish and the Administrative Tools will magically appear on your Start screen. 
  7. Cool beans
