Windows 7: Windows 7 task schedular and CHANGE

Windows 7 task schedular and CHANGE

How can i change the (daily, weekly ...) run time (or start time) of an existing task from say 7pm to 6pm ?
I just can't find an option to CHANGE an existing task !
To CREATE a new scheduler task seems to be easy, but to CHANGE one is not !
Am I stupid ..... or is the Windows 7 task scheduler awkward to use ?
Thanks for help.

By opening the properties of the task in question?

Thanks for your reply. Your tip helped, and solved my problem at last.
To change (or modify) a task in Windows 7 is however not as straight forward as you suggested.
One has to find out the way through about five different panels to change the run time from say 7pm to 6pm, and NOTHING IS DOCUMENTED about CHANGE at all (only how to CREATE).
The W7 task scheduler is not user friendly at all. -- It is a disgrace !
Thank you again anyway.

Says you. I didn't even need a manual or documentation on Task Scheduler for Windows Vista/7/2008 when I got it. Everything is where is should be. Further more, Task Scheduler is an advance user tool. Not for average Joes. Therefore it has different requirements.

Sorry, I don't agree with you.
Not every Windows 7 user is such a crack as you are ........ !
