Determine if a Computer is Managed (Windows)

This article applies to: Endpoint Management Tools

This page is intended for IT support professionals. End users should contact local IT support.

There are a number of ways to check if a computer is being managed through the Endpoint Management Tools service. Here are two easy ways.

  • You will see Software Center listed in the Windows Start menu.
    Software center will be in the Configuration Manager folder.
  • You will see Configuration Manager as an item in the Windows Control Panel. If you are in Category View in the Control Panel, you'll find it within the System & Security category.

Managed computers may have other indicators. For example, we recommend that you adopt a naming convention that indicates whether a computer is managed.
