Is there any way to config Windows to show notification just after specific service started?

By notification I mean any solution/way that user get notify when specific service start running.


You can create a schedule task that will be triggered when a specific service starts. When creating the task, you can specify your query (I don't remember if there's a specific event or you need to edit the XML for that).

EDIT: I found this answer that explains how to do it.

  • I did same as mentioned link says, but task doesn't start when service started. – Mehdi Dehghani Feb 4 '18 at 18:38
  • You've tried with the service name or display name? – arieljannai Feb 4 '18 at 18:53
  • Both (but not at same time, I don't know anything about that kind of XML) – Mehdi Dehghani Feb 4 '18 at 18:54
  • You can try looking here, it's the detailed schema of that XML. – arieljannai Feb 4 '18 at 20:04
  • Is your selected path correct? In the example it's system – arieljannai Feb 4 '18 at 20:05
