Certificates MMC sucks – use powershell!

You can navigate your certificates by opening powershell and doing:

cd Cert:
dir
etc.

A dir of the “my” folder shows thumbprints first which is much more useful to me. The MMC snap-in doesn’t show a thumbprint column.

To find a certificate by thumbprint, do:

dir -recurse | where {$_.Thumbprint -eq “B8421CF9EC87413CB741064C4E798311”} | Format-List -property *
