Admin Center is intended to provide a common interface for remote management of Windows machines running Windows Server (2012 or newer) or Windows 10, whether on physical hardware, virtual hardware, or in the cloud.
The intent behind Admin Center is that it should replace the mix of remote and local admin tools that are used for ad hoc administrative tasks, many of which might traditionally be done with Remote Desktop. To that end, it has interfaces for tasks such as registry editing, managing network settings, listing and ending processes, and managing hardware.
Behind the scenes, Admin Center performs its tasks using PowerShell and WMI. It can be installed on a client machine or remotely on a server, depending on organizational needs. As such, it doesn’t have any dependency on Azure or any other cloud service. It is tested in both Edge and Chrome browsers.
