then it would appear that the /? parameter for schtasks is leaving out a very important command parameter.

Shawn,
Should those of using Win 7 perhaps be interested in this dropdown box from the general tab of task scheduler?

Hello Karl,

I have never had it make a difference, but I'll add this to the tutorial to be safe in case some program may only work in Windows 7, or needs to select a different OS for compatibility mode. Strange that it wouldn't have Windows 7 selected by default since that is the OS installed.

Thank you.

Yeah, I would think so since it does not open the program with /tn included in it.

Shawn, I also find it strange. I'm still trying a couple of things, as I have one abnormality but I may have shot myself in the foot on that one. Will get back with maybe new knowledge.

Shawn,
What do you think about adding the instructions to allow running under battery power, especially for a program such as CCleaner and which one is only running on demand?

And maybe adding how to modify a scheduled task? Thinking here of those who have already made a shortcut for CCleaner an are laptop users.

Good idea Karl. I added the Conditions tab (step 10), but modifying would be a completely new tutorial.

I agree 100%.

Am helping a chap right now who wants, very possibly, to edit the schedule settings for Windows Backup. Probably have to fire up the netbook so I can see what the normal schedule setup is since I've altered the settings on the notebook.

Shawn,
What do you think? Maybe they should also unclick that second box just in case they decide to unplug from AC (scenario-one has started CCleaner as last thing, unplugs from the wall, starts wrapping up cord and making other preparations while waiting for CCleaner to finish.) while CCleaner is running.

If they uncheck the top check box (step 10), it's the same as unchecking both of them. That's why it grays out the second box after unchecking the top one. No need to.

He can make changes directly in the backup settings (step 4 at link) instead to have them reflect in the task as well.
