Task 6: Scheduling Tasks

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then choose Scheduled Tasks.

The Scheduled Tasks window opens. Double-click the Add Scheduled Task list item.

The Schedule Task Wizard starts. Click the Next button.

Select the name of the program that you want Windows to run, and then click the Next button.

INTRODUCTION

If you perform the same tasks repeatedly, or if you often forget to perform routine maintenance tasks, you can set up a schedule that instructs Windows to perform these tasks automatically.


TIP

Browsing

If the program you want to schedule is not listed in the dialog box shown in step 4, click the Browse button and locate the program on your hard drive.


If you are not satisfied with the default name, enter a new one; then select how often to perform this task. Click Next.

Select the time and date to start. (Depending on how often you select to perform this task, you will see different options for selecting the date and time.) Click Next.

Type your user name and password, and then click the Next button.

You see a summary of the scheduled task. Click the Finish button.
