Question about PC Desktops
I believe you mean help and support service. In which case:
1> Go Start -> Control Panel -> ( under Performance) Admin Tools -> Computer Mangement
2> After opening the computer manager, you'll see three explorer branches on the left of the util, the last will be Services and Applications. Click the + next to it to expand it if needed.
3>Under Services and Apps, click on Services in the left explorer panel.
4> It should show several services to the right hand side. Click anywhere on a service and hit "h" to fast navigate until you hit Help and Support.
4.1>On the same line as the name, there should be an entry saying what startup mode it is in - Auto, Manual, or Disabled. If it is in auto, it should already be running, and the "Status" field should say "Started" - if it isn't started, it will be in step 5.
4.2If the service is on Manual, it wont start itself - if you need it in the future, you should right click on the entry and then Properties.
4.2.1>Once in properties, make sure you're in the "General" tab. Once there, a pop-down field next to a label of "Startup type" is where you want to change it to Automatic.
4.3> If the service is Disabled, you will need to follow step 4.2, and set it through Properties to either Manual or Auto.
5> Right Click the entry for Help and Support, and click Start. This should start the service.
Have a nice day and please rate. Thank you.
