Maybe remote desktop is not available or perhaps you just want to check or restart a windows service on a remote computer. Follow the steps below to open windows services through MMC. This applies to Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8; as well as Windows Server Editions.
Launch MMC by hitting the windows key and searching for MMC.
Go to File > Add/Remove Snap-In.
Click on “services” and click add.
You should now have the services available.
If the above doesn’t connect, it is probably due to a security issue or firewall. Try allowing “Remote Service Management” in the firewall on the computer you are trying to connect to.
