Using the Windows Task Scheduler

The Task Scheduler is the utility by which periodic jobs can be scheduled on Windows.

Open the Task Scheduler at Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler. Before you create your first task, you might want to review the existing tasks.

To create a task, find the “Action” section in the right column and select “New task”. I eschew the alternative “New basic task,” which I find too limited to be of much use. Complete as needed.
