Active Directory Users and Computers not showing all tabs in Windows 10 build 1511

Missing tabs in AD Users and Computers (dsa.msc) in Windows 10 build 10586 (1511). Also unable to perform certain actions in AD Users and Computers.

Problem is with the latest RSAT KB

  • Start > Type Features, Click "Turn Windows features on or off"
  • Uncheck Remote Server Administration Tools, Click OK.
  • Open administrative command prompt and run:

wusa /uninstall /kb:2693643 /norestart

  • Reboot the computer
  • In "Turn Windows features on or off", "Remote Server Administration Tools" should no longer be available. 
  • Download and install the old RSAT version from

  • Check RSAT is now ticked in "Turn Windows features on or off"
  • Run dsa.msc
  • Check version in Help > About AD Users and Computers - should now be 10.0.10585.0 and should now show all tabs.
