New Windows 10 services appearing in latest preview builds

Windows Spectrum – This service has the name of Spectrum, and is described with the following caption “Synthesizes perceived environment captured through reality understanding modules”. This service will most likely be used with Hololens and Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality accessories. If you are just using Windows 10 as a computer and not with any hololens-type devices, it should be safe to disable this service or just leave it set to manual.

WFDSConMgrSvc – This service is used with wireless devices, the exact description states “Manages connections to wireless services, including wireless display and docking.” It should also be safe to disable this service if you are not using any wireless screens or docking stations.

PrintWorkflowUserSvc_290d03 – This service is also new and could have a different combination of letters and numbers at the end of its name. Not much information here, its related to some type of printing workflow, perhaps 3D printing?

Payments and NFC/SE Manager – This service is named “SEMgrSvc” and should only be necessary if you are running windows on a newer mobile type pc that has Near Field Communications capabilities. On an old PC you can disable this service.

LPA Service – Also Named the wlpasvc – This service provides profile management for subscriber identity modules.

Dusmsvc – The Dusmsvc does not have an explanation, however Microsoft documentation explains that DUSM stands for Data Usage Subscription Management, so if you are just using your computer at home and don’t have to worry about data usage limits, than you can leave this service alone as well. You may want to leave it if you are ever curious how much data that Windows 10 uses, since it could be measured with the help of this service. MSDN Documentation explains that “The Data Usage Subscription Management (DUSM) schema defines elements that are used to describe cost information for a subscriber’s connection to a metered network.”
