PowerTip: Find running services with PowerShell


Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to find running services.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to quickly produce a sortable list of running services on my computer?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-Service cmdlet to return the services, and the Out-GridView to produce a sortable list:

gsv | ogv

Note   gsv is an alias for Get-Service, and ogv is an alias for Out-GridView.
