Triangolo giallo sull'icona Rete di Windows: cosa significa e come eliminarlo

Here’s a comprehensive list of most – if not all – Windows Service available nowadays on the major Windows operating systems – Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and so on. The list shows the Display Name and the system’s ShortName, which is the unique name used by the OS to locate and idenfity the service.

The list should contain almost any known built-in service from both Windows and Windows Server: however, if you happen to find a missing one, feel free to write it in the comments section of this post, so that we’ll be able to fill the gap!
