If you're an avid follower of my website, you probably know by now that I don't keep things exactly standard. Little tweaks here and there just to make the system mine. Sure if I was a VAP I'd use the cookie-cutter approach, but I'm not, so I don't.
One thing that has been driving me nuts is the amount of whitespace the services snap-in uses. I mean check out the whitespace in the services snap-in!
Now if you want to make it look more like this:
Just follow these simple steps!
- Open c:\windows\system32 and find the services.msc file in the list
- Right-click on services.msc and choose Author
- Make any changes you'd like to the snap-in, make it look EXACTLY how you want it to look when you open it next time
- Close the snap-in and save the changes
Now the next time you go Start-->Run and type in services.msc, the snap-in will open as you left it.
In fact, you can use this for just about any .msc file to customize the look and feel
