How to install RSAT components on Windows 11 computer

Microsoft has been offering Remote Server Administration Tools on the Windows operating system for a few years now which was first introduced in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Remote Server Administration Tools or RSAT is a Windows Server component for remote management of other computers also running that operating system. It allows administrators to run snap-ins and tools on a remote computer to manage features, roles, and services. It also includes tools for Group Policy management and Hyper-V management, as well as the Best Practices Analyzer.

If you want to install Remote Server Administration Tools on your Windows 11 computer, then here is a step-by-step guide on how you can do that using the Settings app.
