Get-Service StartupType

Posted by in PowerShell

If you want to find out startup type of a service using Get-Service cmdlet, you are out of luck. Get-Service cmdlet does not have StartupType property. Set-Service however does. So how can you find out the startup type of a service using powershell?

You can use Get-WmiObject.

(Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -filter "Name='W32Time'").StartMode

Once you determine the startup type of desired service, you can change it using Set-Service cmdlet:

Set-Service W32Time -StartupType Manual
