Windows 7: How do I display the current time in the Task Scheduler?

How do I display the current time in the Task Scheduler?

I'd like the Task Scheduler to display the current time when a task begins. Something like:
"This task is beginning at {CURRENT_TIME}"
"This task has completed at {CURRENT_TIME}"

By default the task history is disabled. You can toggle History Enabled / Disabled in Actions pane on the right. You need to enable it to get the History tab for each task to show detailed task history.

OK. I've enabled History. I'll check it again tomorrow. This would be much batter then fiddling with a message display.

Thanks for this tip!

You are welcome.

The task history is a feature I like very much. You do not need it often but when you need, all information is there.
