Windows Services Manager

1 Lug/09

Working with services in Windows regularly can be quite the challenge. The official way to manage Windows services is to open Services manager. Once the Services manager has been opened it can be used to start and stop services or to change their startup type. The services manager is fine if the process is done a few times a month but it can become quite annoying for users who have to start and stop services multiple times throughout the day.

The Windows Services Manager has been created to offer these users a tool to quickly manage services from the computer desktop. The program places an icon in the system tray that can be used to quickly open a window displaying all Windows services.

Favorites are services that can be accessed directly after right-clicking the system tray icon. A left-click on a favorite service will either start or stop that Windows service depending on its initial stage.

The Windows Services Manager requires the Microsoft .net Framework (not sure which version though) and a computer system running the Windows operating system. It can be directly downloaded from the projects homepage over at Codeplex. The software worked fine on a Windows XP SP3 test system.

The developer of the software has plans to add additional functionality to the 1.0 final release of the software. It would for example be nice to be able to sort the services mimicking the sorting possibilities in the original services manager.
