Computer Management is the main Windows computer management console for local or remote computers. Launch it by

  • right-clicking on My Computer and select Manage, or
  • from Administrative Tools in the Control Panel

Sessions

The Sessions folder shows you who is connected to a server and allows you to disconnect the users. The disconnect action is often misunderstood because when the user tries to access server resources again there is an automatically reconnection. Because the reconnection is transparent to the user, it may appear that the disconnect did not work. To cause the automatic reconnection to fail, some other measure must be taken, such as disabling the user account. The following diagram shows the steps.

1.connected

2.disconnect

3.automatic reconnect  OR

The following dialog shows the Computer Management Sessions folder.
