Windows 7: TaskScheduler: can one specify a task's priority?

TaskScheduler: can one specify a task's priority?

I am starting a couple of tasks each time I log in. However, since the number of these tasks keeps growing they are slowing down my startup more and more and so I rather would like to schedule them to run with low priority and/or delayed (like a minute AFTER startup has completed...).

It seems, that TaskScheduler has no option to specify something like that (except to start things when the system has been idle for a specific time, but my experience with that is, that this never seems to happen...).

Any idea? Is there a way to specify that a scheduled task should run with a specific priority?

Thanks for the pointer. Alas, it doesn't really solve my "problem".
Schtasks seems to offer all the options that the Task Scheduler UI does but not more. In particular I found no option or switch re. priority of the process being started.

You need to export the task, edit the priority, then import it again. The default is 7. 8 is the lowest, 1 the highest. -fm

You did notice the last post in this thread was over 3 years old?

That being said, you do not need export tasks to set delay. Simply edit the Trigger to set delay (Task Properties > Triggers tab):

You can set any value there or select a pre-set value from drop down list.
