Q. How can I use Windows PowerShell to return a list of machine services in a designated state?

A. You can use PowerShell to examine a service object's Status property. You query the Status property with the Where-Object cmdlet, for example, to list only running services, as follows:

get-service | where-object \{$_.status -eq "Running"\}
