Sysinternals Suite hits the Microsoft Store

Published by at

It's a fair bet that anyone reading AAWP (and probably) AAM is also a bit of a geek. And quite probably using Windows on at least one ultra-mobile PC. In which case the arrival of a suite of low level tools that let you get under the hood of the OS should be interesting. It goes without saying that if you're not 100% confident of running low level utilities and perhaps fixing anything that you break, then you should stay well clear!


From the Store entry:

Sysinternals Suite is a bundle of the Sysinternals utilities including Process Explorer, Process Monitor, Sysmon, Autoruns, ProcDump, all of the PsTools, and many more.

The Sysinternals website was created in 1996 by Mark Russinovich to host his advanced system utilities and technical information. Whether you’re an IT pro or a developer, you’ll find Sysinternals utilities to help you manage, troubleshoot, and diagnose your Windows systems and applications.

The suite includes AccessChk, AccessEnum, ADExplorer, ADInsight, ADRestore, Autologon, Autoruns, BGInfo, CacheSet, ClockRes, Contig, Coreinfo, CPU Stress, DebugView, Desktops, Disk2vhd, DiskExt, DiskMon, DiskView, DU (Disk Usage), EFSDump, FindLinks, Handle, Hex2dec, Junction, ListDLLs, LiveKd, LoadOrder, LogonSessions, MoveFile, NotMyFault, NTFSInfo, PendMoves, PipeList, ProcDump, Process Explorer, Process Monitor, PsExec, PsFile, PsGetSid, PsInfo, PsKill, PsList, PsLoggedOn, PsLogList, PsPasswd, PsPing, PsService, PsShutdown, PsSuspend, RamMap, RDCMan, RegDelNull, Regjump, RU (Registry Usage), SDelete, ShareEnum, ShellRunas, Sigcheck, Streams, Strings, Sync, Sysmon, TCPView, Testlimit, VMMap, VolumeID, WhoIs, WinObj, and ZoomIt.

Most of the tool names are self explanatory - some have graphical UIs, some don't, depending on the need. But you only need to run the ones you're interested in. Process Explorer (screenshotted above) is an obvious one, for example.

It's not entirely clear what will happen if the suite is updated in the Store, but I'm guessing it will show as an update in the usual way.

These .EXE tools should run on any x86-based PC - so almost everything, though obviously we have ARM-based PCs starting to appear in the real world.
