    How to start/stop services on Vista?

    OK, I'm embarassed. I cannot find the UI for managing services. Can someone
    tell me what the sequence of mouse/key clicks from the start menu?
    Thanks,
    Siegfried

    Press Control - Shift - Escape together. Vista has reverted to the
    NT4/Windows 2000 key combination.

    I get there the same way I do in XP. Right click (My)Computer, select
    Manage, expand Services and Applications in the left pane to get access to
    Services.

    You can also simply type "services" in the Start Search entry of the start
    menu.


    (Dominic's advice on Ctrl-Shft-Esc gets you to Task Manager, as it does in
    XP. There you can start and stop services.)

    It's very much the same as it was for Win2K and WinXP: Right-click
    Computer (formerly "My Computer") > Manage > Services/Services and
    Applications.
