PowerTip: Find Running Services on Your Workstation


Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to easily find all running services on your workstation.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to find what services are running on my workstation?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the Get-Service cmdlet, filter the status on the word Running, and select the display name of the services,
           for example:

gsv | where status -eq 'running' | select displayname

Note  gsv is an alias for the Get-Service cmdlet.

    There is an even simpler version if you have PS 3.0 or later gsv | ? Status -eq "Running" | Select DisplayName
