  1. From the ServiceDesk Plus Web console, select Admin --> Technicians
  2. Click the user to whom you should enable Desktop Management menu.
  3. Under the Login Details of the user, select "Enable to access Desktop Management Functionality" option
  4. Choose what privileges should the user have in Desktop Central:
    1. Admin privilege will have access to all the features
    2. Guest privilege will only have read-only access to Desktop Management functions.
  5. Select the required privilege and click Save.
  6. Repeat the above steps for every user to whom the Desktop Management menu has to be enabled.

You cannot enable the Desktop Management menu for yourself. You should ask a fellow administrator to enable it for you.
