Managing Favorites

You can add frequently-accessed objects to a list of favorites. Each module has a separate list of favorites in the Navigation pane. You can view all the favorites by clicking All Management Targets.

You can add an object to the Favorites list as you are browsing in a module, or, if you know what objects you want in your Favorites list, you can use Tools | Manage Favorites or Tools | Manage Computer Favorites to add them all at once.

Similarly, you can remove Favorites one at a time or in batches. Removing an object from the Favorites list does not remove the object from the system.

Computers you add as Favorites display under the Computers heading in the Navigation pane.
