The Human Interface Device Access (hidserv) service enables generic input access to Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices such as keyboards and mice. The service activates and maintains predefined keyboard keys, remote controls, and other multimedia devices.
If the Human Interface Device Access service stops, keyboard keys that are controlled by this service no longer function. For instance, the Back key, Forward key, and other keys on USB keyboards and volume buttons on USB speakers do not function.
This service is installed by default and its startup type is Manual. When The Human Interface Device Access service is started in its default configuration, it logs on by using the Local System account.
This service is not dependent on any other system service, nor is any service dependent on it.
