Windows Server – Not display Server Manager

Since Windows Server 2012, Server Manager is displayed when you log in. This can be annoying to close it each time. Hopefully, you can disable this behavior using two solutions:

  • Locally on the server.
  • With GPO.

Local Server Manager

If you want to prevent Server Manager to start automatically:

  • Go to Server Manager, click on Manage and click on Server Manager Properties:
Server Manager Properties

Server Manager Properties

  • Check Do not start Server Manager automatically at logon.
Server Manager not start automatically

Server Manager not start automatically

Group Policy Object

You can also set this option by GPO:

  • Path: Computer/ Administrative Templates / System / Server Manager
  • Setting: Do not display Server Manager automatically at logon
  • Value: Enabled
GPO Server Manager Disabled

GPO Server Manager Disabled
