Using the Enterprise Console, you can configure custom tools which are then available in a device's context menu. For example, you can initiate a remote desktop connection to a device by default.

Note: This option is only available in the Enterprise Console. The configuration of tools is totally independent from the device tools that are available in the PRTG web interface. In the browser context, we do not have as many options as we have them in the Enterprise Console. Because of this, there are only a limited number of fix options available.
