Windows 10: Difference between the Manual and Manual (trigger start) services

    Difference between the Manual and Manual (trigger start) services


    Hi

    I noticed that some services of Windows 10 Preview although I set them on Manual, they are automatically set to "Manual (trigger start". Why? What is the difference between these two startup modes?

    Lastly, with these services, how do I set them to the first startup mode without that they are set to the second startup mode?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Therefore, Windows 10 Insider Preview has the Windows Update service set to "Manual (trigger start)." How do I set it to "Manual"?

    Thanks

    Why would you want to do that? If you use the command shown in the linked article, you will see that it only triggers on group policy change. Unless you're making a group policy change, this will have no effect.

    If you think this is going to stop Windows Update from running, it won't.

    So, what is the group policy that allows to do this?

    You misunderstand. The trigger is *ANY* group policy change. If you're not making a group policy change, it won't trigger. I think you're focused on this as a solution to some other problem, but it's not...

    Hi Balubeto.

    Greetings from the distant future.

    I'm not sure why the other user was being so difficult in answering your question.

    "Manual" and "Manual (Triggered)" are the same mode, but windows 7, 8 and 10 have added features to the "Manual" mode, namely the ability to add very specific triggers which will start a service which ordinarily would not start by themselves. An example of this is the Bluetooth service on a laptop, where the BT handling service only starts when a device tries to connect to the BT radio.

    If your service says "Manual (Triggered)" it means that there is one or more triggers enabled. To look deeper into this, first find the service name:

    Open up services (By opening the "Run" dialog and typing "Services.msc"

    Locate the service in the list, right-click on it and click "Properties". The Service Name is displayed under the "General" tab. For example, my Bluetooth Device Handler service is called "bthserv"

    To find out what these triggers are, open the start menu and type "cmd". Rightclick on the "Command Prompt" list item and select "Run As Administrator"

    At the command prompt, type:

    sc qtriggerinfo bthserv (obviously replace "bthserv" with the name of your service)

    All the triggers for that service will be shown below. To find out more about them, you might need to google or ask about for them individually.

    To delete (and please, make sure you understand what you're changing here BEFORE you change it) the triggers for a service, type:

    sc triggerinfo bthserv delete (again, replacing bthserv with your service name)

    Restart the computer and check the service again using "sc qtriggerinfo". There will no longer be any triggers listed. If you check the service in services.msc, you'll see it now says "Manual" instead of "Manual(Triggered)"

    SC is the service config command, QTRIGGERINFO is the Query Trigger Information command. TRIGGERINFO is the command to actually modify the triggers.

    To show all SC commands and what else you can do with this, just type SC and press enter. Again, please use great care when modifying services, and if you aren't sure of the outcome, keep reading about it until you do. It's also best to leave these alone unless you have a very specific reason for removing the triggers.
