I'm not familiar with schtasks, I assume that is a command for Command Prompt. I'm not really familiar with scheduling tasks anyway, because I never do it, but if you type task scheduler into the Start menu's search window and open it, I think that the interface will provide you with the ability to comment tasks as you want.

when you're in task schedule, click create new task and at the General tab, it will give you an option to name it.
