How to edit (e.g. Name) of a task in built-in Task Scheduler?

Assume I setup a task in Task Scheduler.

It appears in Task Scheduler as active task with the status "Ready".

Now I want to edit this task e.g. the name of the task.

How can I achive this?

If I mark e.g. the task in task list or double click on it then I still can not edit the entry field "Name" in tab "General".

When I disable the task then the status switches to "disabled" but the name is still NOT editable.

So how can I edit name or triggers or conditions for an existing task otherwise?

I know this is for Windows Server 2008 R2 but it might give you some insight => How do I rename a task in Task Scheduled.
