but is there a way I can restart it

There are several ways, but I prefer psservice from Sysinternals. A restart option is available there, which e.g. also takes dependencies into account.

According to the MS Docs, "The Restart-Service cmdlet sends a stop message and then a start message to the Windows Service Controller for a specified service. If a service was already stopped, it is started without notifying you of an error., so it seems perfectly reasonable to me to use an SC STOP, followed by an SC START to accomplish the same thing.
