Windows 10 and localhost is blank

When upgrading to Windows 10 Microsoft turns on "World Wide Web Publishing Service" by default which uses port: 80

  • Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
  • Find “World Wide Web Publishing Service”
  • Right click and select “Stop”
  • Right click and select “Properties”, then change “Startup type” to “Manual”

You should then be able to start up DesktopServer.
