Services msc

    Question

  • This is more of a customization issue.

    Is it possible, when starting up services application(services.msc)...that the "Standard" tab be the default?  I prefer to see more information on the right, than the useless information in the "Extended" Tab.

  • this works properly with 2003, but cannot get it to work properly with 2008.  i got the permissions set for the services.msc file was able to overwrite, but when opening it. Is the same default with extended tab.

  • But when I overwrite the services.msc in the system 32 folder, it does not change the behavior.

    This process works properly in 2003 but not in 2008 r2.

  • Looks to be on the protected resource list.

  • Follow what Dave said.

    Save it in different location other than system32 then copy the saved services.msc file back to system32 folder and replace it with original one.

     

    Thanks

  • Unfortunately this does not work either, as mentioned above it appears to be a "protected resource".

  • Hi,

     

    Please just save it to your Desktop or save it to other location and create a shortcut on the Desktop. You just need to open it from your Desktop.
