How to delete a service

I have to delete a windows service every now and then and I can never remember how to do it so it is time to dump the knowledge here.

Using the command line type:

sc delete [service name here]

Don't know what the service name is? It's easy to find, run services.msc and look at the service you want to delete, the service name is the top most, it is not necessarily the same as the display name.
