    Edit Services "Description" field


    As title suggests, I'm wondering how to edit the description of services that appear in "services.msc"... I have several programs that run as services that I know and use, but have no descriptions at all.

    Would be nice to be able to see these and immediately recognize them when viewing list of running services.

    Cheers
