Service Manager Tray Description
Service Manager Tray is an intuitive application you can use to administer currently running services. It features options that can be tackled even by users with little or no previous experience in such software.
Installer, prerequisites, and systray integration
The setup operation takes minimal time and effort, since there are no unfamiliar options or third-party offers involved. On the other hand, you must have .NET Framework installed, since it was developed with the aid of this platform.
Once launched, Service Manager Tray gets integrated into the systray and sits there silently when not in use, enabling you to carry on with your normal desktop activities without any interruptions.
Easily manage running services
The main window of the service manager has a simple design and layout, showing a list with the names of all detected services, along with the status.
It’s possible to start or stop them with one click, create a list in the tray’s right-click menu with favorite services for quick access, as well as to open a selected service in the Windows task manager.
Evaluation and conclusion
It worked smoothly in our tests, without triggering the operating system to hang, crash or indicate errors. As we expected, it left a small footprint on system resources consumption, thanks to the fact that it needed a low amount of CPU and RAM to work properly.
On the other hand, Service Manager Tray doesn’t make room for configuration, especially when it comes to advanced PC users looking for versatility. We must also keep in mind that it hasn’t received updates for a pretty long time. It remained in beta development stage and some of the displayed options have not been implemented by the developer. Nevertheless, you can test the tool for yourself, since it’s free and open source.
