How to edit existing scheduler task?

The Scheduler instructions for editing and existing task say to select the task and click on Properties under Actions. Unfortunately there is no Properties under Action. What do I do?

Hi MarshallAbrams and welcome to W7 Forums

What options do you get when you right-click the task name?

I see what you're doing. You haven't actually selected a task to change the properties on. In the left hand column, click on Task Scheduler Library and then click on the name of the task to select it. You should then have Properties in the Action sub-menu. Alternatively, double click on the task to directly open its property page.
