You can add new tools to the Tools menu by editing the Tools.Menu file. This file and other customizable files are located in the IP-Network-Browser directory in the SolarWinds Toolset installation directory.

The Tools.Menu file is a text file and can be edited in Notepad. The default Tools.Menu file is listed below.
