You can install Windows Terminal from the Microsoft Store. If you don't have access to the Microsoft Store, the builds are published on the GitHub releases page. If you install from GitHub, the terminal will not automatically update with new versions.

Below are commands for controlling the operation of a service. The Terminal Services Easy Print driver is a feature in Windows Server 2008 that enables users to reliably print from a Terminal Services RemoteApp™ program or from a terminal server desktop session to the correct printer on their client computer.

This happens when Terminal Services is disabled through registry hack. You can fix this by running the below registry change command.

You need to reboot the computer for the changes to take effect. After reboot terminal services starts automatically or you can start the service using net start command as mentioned above.

Terminal Services can’t be stopped like other services. You get the below error when you attempt the same.

How to restart Terminal services?

Since Terminal Services can’t be stopped there is no straightforward way we can do this. Microsoft says this is by design. But in some cases restarting terminal services could be possible by killing the svchost process that runs the terminal services.We can use tasklist and taskkill commands for this.

First get the process id of the terminal services process

Check if Terminal services is the only service running in this svchost. If the svchost is shared with other services then you can stop reading further. Restarting terminal services is not possible on your machine.

In this section, we'll talk about setting up, configuring, and managing TS, Terminal Server,and the other TS role services except TS Licensing and Remote Desktop Connection, which will be discussed in later sections.

Install the Terminal Services Roles

Terminal Services Windows 7 Multiple Sessions

TS is a role that is installed from the Server Manager, while Terminal Server, TS Web Access,TS Licensing, TS Gateway, and TS Session Broker are all role services that you canseparately select while you are installing the TS role. TS Configuration and TS Managerare automatically installed with TS Services, while TS RemoteApp is automatically installed with Terminal Server.

NOTE: It is not recommended that you install TS on an Active Directory domain controller becauseit increases your security risks and, since TS uses a lot of computer resources, it degrades AD'sperformance. Running TS within an AD domain is needed for some of TS's functions, such as TSSession Broker, and provides added capabilities to others, such as TS Licensing.

NOTE: To install the TS role and the role services discussed here, if you have not already done so, youwill be told to also install Network Policy And Access Services, Web Server (IIS), and Windows ProcessActivation Service.

  3. Read the note about the need to install any application you want to run with TS after installing TS and click Next.
  4. Read about Network Level Authentication and decide if you want to use it. Amajor factor is that it is available only with Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) 6.0,which is in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 and can be downloadedfor Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 or SP2, but it significantly enhances security. Click your choice and click Next.
  5. You are asked to determine the type of TS licensing you want to use. For thediscussion here, leave that decision to a later section in this tutorial. You have120 days to make the decision. Leave the default, Configure Later, selected and click Next.
  6. Add the users or user groups that will use TS by clicking Add, clickingAdvanced, clicking Find Now, double-clicking a user or group in the list, andclicking OK. Repeat this as you need. When you are ready, click Next.
  7. You are told that TS Gateway requires a certificate to use the Secure SocketsLayer (SSL) protocol to encrypt transmissions and you have three options fora certificate, two of which are discussed here:
    • If you have a certificate on the server already, click the first option; if thecertificate is in the Windows certificate store, it will be listed. Otherwise,click Import and follow the steps of the Certificate Import Wizard, clicking Next as needed.
    • If you don't have a certificate, click the second option, and a self-signed certificate will be created for you.
  8. Click Next. A TS connection authorization policy (TS CAP), which allowsusers to pass through a TS Gateway and access a network, and a TS resourceauthorization policy (TS RAP), which allows users to pass through a TSGateway and utilize particular computers running Terminal Server and otherresources, are explained. Click Now to create the policies now and click Next.
  9. Add the user groups that will use TS Gateway as described in Step 7 and click Next.
  10. Enter the name for your TS CAP, accept the default of using a password, andclick Next. Enter the name for your TS RAP, choose whether to use specificcomputer groups you select or all computers on the network, and click Next.

  14. Click Close, and click Yes to restart your computer. After restarting your roles,role services will be configured and you will be given a warning message thatTS Licensing is not installed and that you have 119 days to do that (the dayyou install it counts as the first day). When it is done, you will be told it was successful. Click Close.
    NOTE: The warning message that TS Licensing is not installed and that you have so many days to dothat will reappear every time you restart your computer. This is called 'nagware' and it is unfortunate that Microsoft is using it.
  15. Open Roles in the left column of the Server Manager and click TerminalServices. In the right pane, you should see three informational events that tellyou that your TS RAP, TS CAP, and certificate have been created; the system services that are running; and the role services that are installed.
TIP: Since there's no obvious way to tell which of the three informational events is which, you can select each and click Properties to find out.
NOTE: Remote Desktop Connection, although not installed by default on Windows Server 2008, isautomatically installed when you install TS. See 'Use Applications Server Mode' later in this tutorial.
