Windows 7: How to make a shortcut to task scheduler

How to make a shortcut to task scheduler

How can I make a shortcut to the Windows 7 Task Scheuler?

I'm using it often and each time I go to Windows Help and search for task scheduler. Then click through the results several times before I get to the window showing my actual scheduled tasks.

It would save tons of time, if you can help me by providing directions on how to get to that window quickly or creating a shortcut to it.

My thanks in advance,

/ Gary E.

You can go to C:\Windows\system32 where you will find taskschd, you can right click on that to pin to taskbar or start menu, you can also right click on it and then send to, desktop (create shortcut)

Hey -- a big thanks to both of you!

I'll use Derekimo's great suggestion and this will be the last time for a long time that I'll have to type "task scheduler" just to see my list of scheduled tasks or make revisions or add more. A great time-saver!!

Thanks again,

/ Gary E.
