Installing Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10/Windows 11

In this guide we’ll go through how to quickly add all of them using PowerShell and where they are in the GUI.

Installing RSAT the quickest and easiest way using PowerShell

Run the following command in an elevated PowerShell session.

1
Get-WindowsCapability -Name RSAT* -Online | Add-WindowsCapability -Online

When installation is completed, the icons will be available in the Start Menu under “Windows Tools” in Windows 11 and under “Windows Administrative Tools” in Windows 10.

Installing RSAT using the GUI in Windows 11

  1. Go to the Windows 11 Settings using WIN + I or via the Start Menu.
  2. On the left side select “Apps”, then “Optional Features”.
  3. On the “Add an optional feature” section, click “View features”.
  4. In the new window, type “RSAT” in the text box select all the tools you want to install.
  5. In the new window click the “Install” button to install the tools you selected.
  6. When installation is completed, the icons will be available in the Start Menu under “Windows Tools”.

Installing RSAT using the GUI in Windows 10

  1. Go to the Windows 11 Settings using WIN + I or via the Start Menu.
  2. On the left side select “Apps”, then the text link “Optional Features”.
  3. On the new page click “Add a feature”.
  4. In the new window, type “RSAT” in the text box select all the tools you want to install.
  5. Click the “Install” button to install the tools you selected. You should see the tools you selected be installed under “Latest Actions”.
  6. When installation is completed, the icons will be available in the Start Menu under “Windows Administrative Tools”.

Offline Installation

The above methods require an internet connection for Windows to download the files needed. To install the tools offline you will need to download the Windows 10/11 Features On Demand ISO which is available via the Volume Licensing Portal. I haven’t found a link to these ISO’s direct from Microsoft anywhere else. Once you have downloaded the ISO, extract the files to a location and run the following PowerShell command:

1
Get-WindowsCapability -Name RSAT* -Online | Add-WindowsCapability -Online -LimitAccess -Source "C:\FOD-ISO-Extracted\

When installation is completed, the icons will be available in the Start Menu under “Windows Tools” in Windows 11 and under “Windows Administrative Tools” in Windows 10.
