     21 processes.


If a process has no associated services, display a window name, as before (like Chrome above). Services generally don't have windows.
Also, it would probably be trivial to add PIDs to the list output by the SERVICES command. Say, SERVICES /Z to display PIDs in decimal, or /X for hex.
