Synopsis

Control Panel [Performance and Maintenance] Scheduled Tasks

Start All Programs Accessories System Tools Scheduled Tasks

The Scheduled Tasks feature allows you to schedule any program or WSH script to run at a specified time or repeat at some regular interval. To create a new scheduled task, open the Scheduled Tasks folder, and double-click Add Scheduled Task. Follow the prompts, or simply press Next repeatedly, until you reach the last page, at which point you'll be able to configure the task with a more convenient Properties dialog.

TIP

Scheduled tasks will not be performed if you've selected the Stop Using Task Scheduler option, if your computer is turned off, if Windows isn't running, or if your portable computer is running off its battery.
