Windows 7: How do I Import/Export Task Manager settings all in one swoop?

How do I Import/Export Task Manager settings all in one swoop?

I am moving into a new system. How do I transfer all my settings in Task Manager to the new system. I hope I am wrong but I see an option to export entry them one at a time. I have 25 of them, all tediously set the way I want them

Is there not a way to do export/import them all as a single transfer?

Did you mean to say Task Manager? Or do you mean Task Scheduler? Well, I have found a method to export all, but not import. And I have found a method to import them all at once if you export them one by one. Have a look.

You got that right, thanks for the correction. It is the task scheduler.
I am looking into the options you sent.

P.S. Connecting to your log in, I have seen other similars: "Some Guy", and "That Other Guy"

And then there is "That Other Guy" but I can only imagine that you have seen all this before...

Back to the topic: I looked at all the finger calisthenics that it would take to export/import the entries for the scheduler and decided to just recreate them and get it over with....

Meanwhile, I have one timer setting that has extensive entries but when I created it, I misnamed it. I don't seem to be able to correct the name. Am I missing something or is this another MS "Feature".

It would also be nice to be able to copy/paste a setting and make the minor adjustments for the new one.
