What are windows services? How are they differ from other .NET application?

Windows services are a way to create continuously running applications in the background. They don’t interfere with other applications and can be run whenever a machine starts. They can be paused if and when needed and quietly run in the background without the need of any user intervention. Windows services can be configured to run under specific user accounts. They run under their own windows sessions and are ideal for tasks that need to be performed periodically or for monitoring requirements. Main difference between windows services and other .Net applications lies in the fact that they run in their own windows session without any user intervention in the background.
