...or from an elevated admin shell where you installed the Cygwin 
service with cygrunsrv -I or ran the /bin/...-config script e.g.:

	$ sc config sshd start= delayed-auto depend= cygserver/tcpip

no space before = (part of option), space between = and value required, 
services it should start after and depends on separated by forward slashes.

>From any shell, you can list installed Cygwin services using 

	$ cygrunsrv -L

with -V also listing all parameters and their values.

with the usual caveats regarding registry key names, changes, and 
modifications.
Parameters and other cygrunsrv changes will not be picked up until 
the service is stopped and restarted from cygrunsrv in an elevated 
admin shell.

This approach has the advantages that cygrunsrv does not support 
service or parameter changes or modifications, cygrunsrv -I and 
sc config require an elevated admin shell, sc config does not support 
cygrunsrv and other services' Parameters and other features, and 
regedit requires formatted file input or a GUI.
