Exercise 1 - Stopping, Starting, Restarting, and Disabling Services in Windows 10

Services in Windows operating systems provide additional features to your computer more than just running user applications. There are numerous background operating system services that are automatically started by Windows such as Server and Workstation. The Server service gives Windows the capability to share its folders, files and printers to other users. Whereas, the Workstation service allows a Windows computer to connect to shared resources from other computers in the network.

In this exercise, you will stop, start, restart, and disable some services in Windows 10.

Exercise 2 - Creating and Managing Task Scheduler

Managing Windows devices in a corporate network calls for performing a number of system tasks such as backing up system files, defragmenting disk volumes, cleaning disks of unwanted files among other things.

Windows provides the Task Scheduler as a means of automating the execution of system tasks to occur at a pre-determined time. A batch script with the relevant commands is created and saved by the system administrator in a designated folder. The script is linked with a scheduled task and will execute at the appointed date and time.

In this exercise, you will create and manage the Task Scheduler.

Exercise 3 - Managing Devices with Windows Device Manager

Device Manager provides a comprehensive summary of installed hardware devices and their corresponding device drivers on Windows.

You can view, manage, monitor and control the hardware devices of the system using Windows Device Manager.

In this exercise, you will troubleshoot using Windows Device Manager/disable a device.
