      Have a computer that has many services that aren’t running when they should be.  They show as either “manual” or “manual (trigger start)”.  Windows 10 won’t allow me to change them or start.

      Suggestions as to my path forward please.

      Manual start means that a service’s operation is requested by another program. Triggered Start means some services are invoked with a event.

      What is one of those services you want running? Was there any error message?

      Windows sets the start up type deliberately, there is no need to change them.

      cheers, Paul
