Windows 7: Task Scheduler - Library location greyed out

11 Aug 2013   #1

Win 7 Pro 64-bit
Task Scheduler - Library location greyed out

I wrote some tasks in the Task Scheduler of Windows 7 and now I would like to make a library for them and move then from root \ to the library. I have found several naming issues. Are these yet more typical defects from Microsoft or is something configured wrong?

1. Once a library is created, it cannot be renamed. Really? REALLY?
2. Once a task is created, you cannot move it to another library. Really?
The library "location" is displayed grayed out when you create the task, to tell you where you are creating it
but then, you cannot change that location once the task is created, even when editing it. REALLY?

Is this normal or is something configured wrong?

You can't move Tasks because they are Scheduled Tasks, not ordinary files. Leave them be.

Perhaps if you explain the reason you want to do this we can understand better such a request.
