      i have installed Jenkins 2.190.1 on AWS machine of Windows 2012 R2 OS. Jenkins is running on port 8080. have configure project for cucumber test automation. The Test scripts are running but the browser is not visible. They are running at background means in headless mode. I want to execute my test script not in headless manner. For this, i tried to search how to set 'false' value for ' java.awt.headless ' but didn't get the setting on Windows machine.

      Also, i tried to stop the jenkins service and run the jenkins via command line mode. In this mode, able to observe the test script execution on IE 11 browser. But if i abort the execution then the jenkins gets terminated as shown in below log & screenshot and cucumber report is not generated. 

      Please let me know how to run Jenkins as service not in Headless mode i.e. 'java.awt.headless=false'
