ServiceTray Version History

Version 5 (April 8 2024) New!

New Features
  • Instead of using a single icon for all states, you can now choose the icons to show in the running, stopped or other states.
  • The "Service Information" window now shows the service's process identifier (PID), CPU usage, memory allocated, start time and uptime. Its contents can be copied to the clipboard.
Fixes & Improvements
  • You can now choose from 9 icons to show on the taskbar — the six available in previous releases and 3 new ones.
  • For clarity, the name of the service is mentioned in the tray menu entries.
  • If the service is not installed when ServiceTray starts, ServiceTray will report the problem and exit. If the service is uninstalled while ServiceTray is running, ServiceTray will show the yellow icon and no service operations will be available.
  • The text and icons on the taskbar tray menu have been enlarged, to improve readability.
  • If necessary, ServiceTray requests UAC elevation when showing the "Service Information" window.
