Deleting Windows Services In PowerShell

Leave a comment

For deleting a Windows service in Windows CMD, you have to call

sc delete "Service Name"

This doesn’t work in PowerShell, because sc is an alias for the cmdlet Set-Content in PowerShell. Deleting Windows service in PowerShell can be done by calling

 sc.exe delete "Service Name" 

Note that PowerShell has to be run as administrator.
