Starting the Certificates snap-in

You use the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Certificates snap-in to manage public key certificates

If you are the administrator of the computer, when you add Certificates to your MMC console, you have the option of managing certificates that are issued to one of the following:

Yourself (the My user account option)

Your computer (the Computer account option)

Local services (the Service account option)

If you are a user, when you add Certificates to your MMC console, you can manage certificates only for your user account.

A separate instance of Certificates must be loaded for each entity for which you are managing certificates.

For more information, see To manage certificates for your user account, To manage certificates for a computer, To manage certificates for a service, and Certificates overview
