Recast Software’s Right Click Tools

Right Click Tools is a Console extension that adds functionality to Console, such as clearing the client cache, restarting the SMS Agent Host service, repairing the client, updating group policy, and more. These actions can be ran on a single device or a collection of devices. The university does not license Right Click Tools. We use the community edition.
