There are many system services in a Windows 8 computer which are not required for every user. Some of these services use a lot of CPU resources and if you are not using them it is better to disable it. You can disable some of the system services in your Windows computer to increase the performance of your system. However, before disabling a Windows system service you need to make sure that you do the proper research for it. In this post, I will let you know how you can disable or enable a Windows system service in Windows 8:
1) Go to: Charms bar –> Search
2) Type: services under “Settings” and then click on “View Local Services” on the left side.
3) In the “Services” dialog box, if the service which you want to disable is running (you can see that under “Status” of a service), then, right click on it and click on “Stop”.
4) When the service is stopped, right click on the particular service and then click on “Properties”.
5) Go to: General Tab.
6) Under “Startup type” drop down menu, select “Disabled”.
7) Then, click on “Apply” and then “OK”.
You have successfully disabled a Windows service.
If you wish to enable this service or any other service, from the “Startup type” drop down menu, select “Automatic” or “Manual”. If you wish that the service should be started when the computer starts then select “Automatic” or if you wish the service should be started by a user action, then select “Manual”.
