There is an option for that in the Xampp Control Panel.

Could not get that to work in the Xampp control panel. Keeps coming back with errors.
After much searching have come up with how to start apache server as a service.
1. Run CMD as administrator
2. cd to c:\xampp\apache\bin
3. at the command prompt, type in httpd.exe -k install
4. exit out of CMD
5. restart the PC

Of course the same for Xampp Control Panel - did you run it as Administrator?

Here is the error I get. I am running the apache_installservice.bat as administrator. This is all on a windows10 pc.

Installing Apache2.4 as an Service
The system cannot find the path specified.
Now we Start Apache2.4 :)
The Apache2.4 service is starting.
The Apache2.4 service could not be started.

A service specific error occurred: 1.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3547.

Press any key to continue . . .

This will not work, because if you run this bat file as Administrator by rightclick menu, the httpd.exe is expected in a different path (C:\Windows\System32).

Instead run your XAMPP control panel as Administrator (rightclick -> run as Administrator) and click in the red cross of the module you want to install as service.

Alternatively you can open a Windows cmd as Administrator, navigate to the path the apache_installservice.bat is saved and execute it.
