I have tried using the task scheduler in windows but to no avail. I would like someone to give me a little background to scheduling tasks in windows 7. Please, how do you assign a task to the scheduler to perform? How do you optimize the scheduler to do unfamiliar tasks in windows?

How do you perform task scheduling in windows?



How are you? The task Scheduler permits you to form all types of robotic tasks in Windows. You may schedule a program to sprint at a particular time interval, a message to be displayed when something come to pass and so on. We may use different methods to do this.

The first method is:  

Step 1 : Go to start menu.

Step 2 : Go to All Program option

Step 3 : Go to Accessories option

Step 4 : Go to System Tools option

Step 5: Finally go to the Task Scheduler. You may also open scheduler by typing schedule in the search box of the start menu.

Second Method :

Step 1 : Go to control panel.

Step 2 : Go to system and security option

Step 3 : Go to Administrative Tools option

Step 4 : Finally go to the Task Scheduler. That is exactly it. The second method is also useful for windows 8 and 8.1.
