The tools of the Federal Reserve include all the above except changing the prime interest rate. The prime interest rate is set by banks. To be sure, the practices and policies of the Fed affect the prime, but the Fed does not set that rate. The Fed also employs the operations of the FOMC, and Regulation "T" in its efforts.
