If you want to open the window that list all the services, then type --- services.msc

You can use the commands net start <service name here> for some services or sc <service name here> start

Additionally, you can write a batch file that can start and stop services of your choice, for instance this batch file I wrote turns on/off windows update services through a menu. You're free to use this and manipulate anyway you choose to get an understanding of how it works. Just remember to name the file with a .bat or .cmd extension.

Good luck.
