In this article John demonstrates, how to create a simple Windows Service application in Visual Studio. Here are the basic steps that you perform to create and use your service:
Creating a Service
1. Create a project by using the Windows Service project template, and configure it. This template creates a class for you that inherits fromSystem.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase and writes much of the basic service code, such as the code to start the service.

2. Write the code for the OnStart and OnStop procedures, and override any other methods that you want to redefine.

3. Implement service pending status . By default, services created with System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase implement only a subset of the available status flags. If your service takes a long time to start up, pause, or stop, you can implement status values such as Start Pending or Stop Pending to indicate that it's working on an operation.

4. Add the necessary installers for your service application.

5. (Optional) Add startup parameters, specify default startup arguments, and enable users to override default settings when they start your service manually.

6. Build your project .

7. Install your service on the local machine.
8. Access the Windows Service Control Manager and start your service.

9. Uninstall the service .
To begin, you create the project and set values that are required for the service to function correctly.
To create and configure your service
1. In Visual Studio, on the menu bar, choose File, New, Project. The New Project dialog box opens.

2. In the list of Visual Basic or Visual C# project templates, choose Windows Service, and name the project MyNewService. Choose OK. The project template automatically adds a component class named Service1 that inherits from System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase.

3. On the Edit menu, choose Find and Replace, Find in Files (Keyboard: Ctrl+Shift+F). Change all occurrences of Service1 to MyNewService. You’ll find instances in Service1.cs, Program.cs, and Service1.Designer.cs (or their .vb equivalents).

4. In the Properties window for Service1.cs [Design] or Service1.vb [Design], set the ServiceName and the (Name) property for Service1 toMyNewService, if it's not already set.

5. In Solution Explorer, rename Service1.cs to MyNewService.cs, or Service1.vb to MyNewService.vb.
To install a Windows Service
1. In Windows 7 and Windows Server, open the Developer Command Prompt under Visual Studio Tools in the Start menu. In Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, choose the Visual Studio Tools tile on the Start screen, and then run Developer Command Prompt with administrative credentials. (If you’re using a mouse, right-click on Developer Command Prompt, and then choose Run as Administrator.)

2. In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the folder that contains your project's output. For example, under your My Documents folder, navigate to Visual Studio 2013\Projects\MyNewService\bin\Debug.

3. Enter the following command:
installutil.exe MyNewService.exe
To uninstall your service
1. Open a developer command prompt with administrative credentials.

2. In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the folder that contains your project's output. For example, under your My Documents folder, navigate to Visual Studio 2013\Projects\MyNewService\bin\Debug.

3. Enter the following command:
installutil.exe /u MyNewService.exe
To start and stop your service
1. In Windows, open the Start screen or Start menu, and type services.msc. You should now see MyNewService listed in the Services window.

2. In the Services window, open the shortcut menu for your service, and then choose Start.

3. Open the shortcut menu for the service, and then choose Stop.

4. (Optional) From the command line, you can use the commands net start ServiceName and net stop ServiceName to start and stop your service.
I hope this page will helps you to create first window service in C#.Thanks.

Yes, You are correct. You can also double click the application file (.exe) to install the windows service.
Then open IIS manager from run command (services.msc), in IIS manager you can manage your service.
