NET START command in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-09-22
I'm trying to display the name of WIndows 7 services in DOS or command line. When I run NET START it displays the 'Display name' and not the actual 'Service name' of all started services. For example, the the 'Display name' for Plug and play is 'Plug and play' but the actual 'Service name' that you would use with NET STOP is 'PlugPlay'. I'm just curious why do you get a list with the display names and not the actual service names when you run NET START? Does anyone know how to display the actual service names in command line?
