Where Is the Tools Menu on My Computer?

To view the Tools menu on Windows 10, first navigate to the Control Panel. The Administrative Tools menu can be found within the Control Panel. Users can also use keyboard shortcuts to access the Tools menu by pressing the Windows button on the keyboard, followed by the X key.

The Tools menu provides useful functionality for Windows users. With the use of the Tools menu, users have the ability to control system settings through switching between applications, searching files on the computer or terminating applications.

On Mac OS X, the System Preferences serve as the equivalent to the Tools menu in Windows. In order to access the System Preferences, select the Apple icon in the top left corner of the desktop, and choose System Preferences in the drop down menu that appears. The System Preferences can be used to update displays, choose settings for various aspects of your computer, and search for files or applications.
