Shortcut to toggle Plex Media Server from windows desktop (ReadyNAS 426)

Hi

Is there any way to create a shortcut in Windows 11 to toggle Plex Media Server (or any other app) on and off without first going into the ReadyNAS admin page and selecting the Apps tab

Thanks

I don't run Plex on my NAS, so don't know if the standard service plexmediaserver start and service plexmediaserver stop commands work.  If you go to SSH and determine that do work, Putty can be used to send scripted commands to a NAS via SSH.

I'm not aware of a Windows-based utility, but if you have an Android or Apple phone, I would recommend the NAS Utils app by Michael Doyle.
