"sc.exe query type= driver" - All Device Driver Services

This section provides a tutorial example on how to list all device driver services with 'sc.exe' Service Controller command tool.

As I mentioned earlier, there are two types of services stored in system registry: device driver services and application program services. You can use "regedit.exe" to view all of them as shown in the previous section.

Or you can use "sc.exe" to list them. Here is a tutorial example of listing all active device driver services:
