Black Viper’s Windows 10 Service Configurations

 

Introduction

To continue my fine tradition of optimizing MS’s latest OS, I have here my service configuration findings to date. This information is based upon the Windows 10 desktop versions Creators Update (version 15002) scheduled to be released in April 2017 (noted in the table with ***), and the Anniversary Update released August 2, 2016 with all patches and security updates as of February 2017.

Important Information

  • My focus is on Windows 10 Home and Pro versions to provide as much information to the widest audience possible.
    • All of these services are “Standard” with Windows 10 and installed by default, with updates released by Microsoft since the initial retail version, or with the Add/Remove Windows Features control panel.
    • If you discover a service that is not listed here, another application, driver or program installed them.
  • Make sure that your system is up to date.
    • This information assumes the latest version of Windows 10 with all updates installed.
    • Hit Start -> Settings -> Update & Security -> Check now/Install now.
  • Adjust the settings on this page by doing one of the following:
    • Search for “Services” from the task bar. You are looking for the link that is “Services – Desktop App”.
    • Fire up the Run box (Windows Key + R) and type: “services.msc” (without the quotes). No not use msconfig.
    • Open up the Administrative Tools either by searching from the task bar or using the legacy Control Panel. The link you are looking for in the Administrative Tools is “Services”.
  • Black Viper’s Services Configuration Registry Files for Default and Safe are coming soon. When I complete this task, it will only take one click to adjust all services that I recommend to be modified or revert back to the default values. Please check back.
  • Before disabling any service, do a sanity check and “think before acting”. See also the notes for tablet/mobile devices below.
    • WLAN Autoconfig service is required for normal operation of your wireless network card. It is listed here as Manual due to most desktops not needing wireless (WiFi) access, but if you do have a wireless network card installed (laptop), it will be Automatic by default.
  • I cannot possibly test all possible configurations extensively!
    • What I mean by this is each persons specific computer needs as we all should know by now that everyone uses their computer for different tasks.
    • What I can offer is what “works for me” and the obstacles I have come across so you do not have to discover them on your own.
    • If you discover a service is required for a particular task, please Contact BV and let me know.
  • The columns can be sorted and individually hidden.
    • Select the column header to sort by that field and/or use the column hiding GUI directly above the table search box.
    • I highly recommend using the column hiding feature to cut confusion associated with “too much information” and ignoring service settings not valid in your particular situation.
  • Notes for Tablet, Surface and Surface Pro Windows 10 Users:
    • The Safe and Tweaked configurations assume a desktop environment as I do not own any mobile device running Windows of any version and cannot extensively test the configurations on them to find out what breaks.
      • If you would like these configurations tested, consider visiting my GoFundMe page to specifically offer support to test and recommend service settings for mobile devices.
    • I have viewed default service settings by going into a local Best Buy retail store and taking pictures of the services with my phone. Seriously, I am not joking.
      • I have discovered that the default settings are pretty close to a desktop configuration (which means that many services targeted for mobile devices can be disabled), so Windows 10 Home or Pro is a pretty good start for default information, depending on the version of Windows 10 installed on your device.
      • Do not configure your mobile device with “Tweaked”.
    • If you still desire to adjust your service settings on a mobile device, a bit of “thinking” may be required to make sure complete functionality of the tablet after adjusting service settings.
      • Do not disable obvious services related to touch screen or tablet actions.
        • Example: Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service.
  • Services with “?????” in the name are computer specific with seemingly a random 5 digit code attached to the service name.
    • Odds are, all of these can be disabled on a desktop system, but further research is needed and I am working on that.
  • Service settings are global, meaning changes apply to all users.

February 2017 Notes for a Happier Computer and User

  • Even though the Windows 10 Service Configurations are valid to include all Default settings and the next major update to Windows 10 called the Creators Update (15002), I am going to refrain from rapidly updating Individual Service Links.
  • In general, it takes me one hour per service with ~250+ services listed, which would take me 25 days straight at ten hours a day to update, or more realistically, two hours per day for three months… landing past the Creators Update release date.

    • What I am working on is updating the website with the Insider Preview Build (15002) information to get a jump start on the general/official public release.
    • These updates will roll out to the live site when I verify the information is valid for current versions as well as the Creators Update, meaning the information did not change.

Table Header Information

  • The columns can be sorted. Select the column header to sort by that field.
  • The columns can be hidden individually. The column hiding GUI is directly above the table search box in the upper right hand side.
  • DEFAULT ~ What MS thinks should be running by default on Windows 10’s various versions.
  • “Safe” Configuration ~ This is the configuration that 99.99% of the people will be able to use with little or no side effects. This does not guarantee it will work for you, but if adjusting your services scares you, this configuration would be a good starting point. One should also take a moment and think about issues that may arise:
    • Example: if you use an Xbox and its’ game streaming capabilities, don’t disable the three Xbox services as I have.
    • Example: desktop computers generally don’t have GPS devices installed, so disabling all location services is a pretty safe bet.
    • 48 service settings have been changed from the default annotated by an (*) asterisk.
      • Sorting the columns will help identify which services these are.
  • “Tweaked” Configuration ~ This is the configuration that a lot of gamers, geeks, audiophiles and power users enjoy using and ask me for.
    • Even though I follow this configuration myself, this does not guarantee it will work for you.
    • I generally do not answer “my computer is broke, what is wrong” questions from the users who choose to use this configuration. If this scares you, use “Safe” instead!
    • I have disabled IPv6 “helper” services in this configuration. If you have native IPv6 on your network, you do not need these. If you are a home user, you do not need IPv6 at all unless your ISP supports IPv6. As such, native networks still have IPv6 support and all others are removed (conversion, tunnels, etc).
    • 72 service settings have been changed from the default annotated by an (*) asterisk.
      • Sorting the columns will help identify which services these are.

Configuration Information

  • An * (asterisk) indicates changes from the default with regards to “Safe” and “Tweaked”.
  • Two ** (asterisks) indicates you can add or remove the service by using the Turn Windows Features On or Off feature.
  • Three *** (asterisks) indicates services added, renamed or removed with the Creators Update scheduled for release in April 2017.
  • Automatic ~ With a service in this state, it will generally start at boot time and remain running.
    • Some services, when no longer required, will also automatically stop when not needed. If you find you do not need a service, place it into Manual or Disabled.
  • Automatic (Delayed Start) ~ With a service in this state, it will start just after boot time, allowing the desktop to load much quicker than in previous versions of Windows.
    • Some services, when no longer required, will also automatically stop when not needed. If you find you do not need a service, place it into Manual or Disabled.
  • Manual (Trigger Start) ~ This is a version of Manual mode that allows Windows to start a service when specifically called and Microsoft’s answer to “too many services running all the time”.
  • Manual ~ Manual mode allows Windows to start a service when needed.
    • Very few services will start up when required in Manual mode (if the default is Automatic).
    • If you find you need a service, place it into the default configuration listed below.
  • Disabled ~ This setting will stop a service from starting, even if needed.
    • Errors in the Event Viewer will show up complaining of that fact.
    • Some services, while Disabled, will constantly complain.
    • This situation is resolved if placed in Manual.
    • The service descriptions identifies those that should be in Manual vice Disabled.
  • “Started” ~ A service that either set to Manual or Automatic that is running by default at or shortly after boot time as shown in the status column of the Control Panel/services.msc.
  • “Not Started” ~ A service set into Automatic that is not running by default at or shortly after boot time.
  • “Not Available” ~ A service that does not apply to the particular version of Windows 10 listed in the table header.
    • Windows 10 Home has less installed default services than Windows 10 Pro does. As such, these services can generally be disabled on Pro systems as developers usually do not target only Pro/Education/Enterprise versions.
  • “Not Installed/Uninstalled” ~ The ability to install/uninstall a service by using “Add/Remove Windows Features” control panel function.
    • Generally speaking, if a service can be uninstalled, it is never needed for a general use desktop.
    • Two ** (asterisks) indicates you can add or remove the service by:
      1. Click on the Search the web and Windows box
      2. Type Control Panel (or enough letters so it appears in the results)
      3. Select Control Panel (under Results)
      4. Select Programs
      5. Select Programs and Features
      6. Select Turn Windows Features on or off
    • Or
      1. Head to Start (Windows Key)
      2. Select All Apps (bottom left)
      3. Select Control Panel (under Windows System)
      4. Select Programs
      5. Select Programs and Features
      6. Select Turn Windows features on or off
