Managing Tasks

Using the wizard, you can enable, disable, or delete tasks as well. You can also selectively enable or disable tasks. To enable or disable tasks, follow these steps:

  1. Access the Scheduled Tasks folder. On a local system, select or double-click Scheduled Tasks in the Control Panel. On a remote system, start Windows Explorer, use the My Network Places node to navigate to the computer you want to work with, click the computer's icon, and select Scheduled Tasks.

  2. Select or double-click the task you want to modify. The properties dialog box for the selected task opens. The Task tab should be selected by default, with tabs also shown for Schedule and Settings pages or sheets.

  3. Select Enabled to enable the task, or clear Enabled to disable the task.

  4. Click OK.

To delete tasks you no longer need to work with, follow these steps:

  1. Access the Scheduled Tasks folder.

  2. Right-click the task you want to remove, and select Delete from the command menu.
