How can I open WinXP’s Services control panel applet on the Standard tab by default?

The Services Manager always opens up in "Extended" view in the top left of the screen, too small to read, and I end up changing to "Standard" view and resizing the window. But then when I close and open again, it's gone back to "Extended" view in a small window.

Is there a known way to get it to remember its state when I last closed it?

Indeed there is!

  • In Control Panel -> Administrative Tools, right click the services snap-in and select Author

    alt text

  • Change the view to Standard then go to File -> Save

    alt text

It should now open with standard view by default.
