How to configure Windows 10 Services

With the last release of Windows, Microsoft has added a considerable amount of new services and features. This is my How-to guide on service vulnerabilities and non-essential services in Windows 10.

Please note – This configuration has only been tested on, both a desktop and laptop and does not take into consideration the Surface or Surface 3 devices.

There are 4 distinct versions of Windows 10Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education.

The recorded configuration was achieved on Pro Edition on both desktop and laptop computers. Please keep in mind if you have a different version, you may lack or have additional services not covered by this How-to guide.
