    Can Task Scheduler open apps trigged in background by Action Center?


    Hello! I'm using a computer-friendly texting app called TextNow. What's nice is that I can close the app but keep it opened in the background. When a text is received, a notification comes to the Action Center. However, as soon as the banner disappears (normally after five seconds, but I changed mine to five minutes), the notification is deleted from the Action Center as well, for some reason. Therefore, if I go away from my computer for more than five minutes, I won't know I've been texted.

    However, if Task Scheduler (or something else) can open the app when TextNow's Action Center notification is triggered (which happens whenever a text is received), the app would be the first thing I see when I return to the computer, even if the five-minute banner disappears.

    Can Task Scheduler open an app that's in the background when the app notifies the Action Center? Thanks!

    :)

  2. How to schedule a task on action center notification trigger

    Hi,

    I would like to create a task in Task Scheduler on Windows 10, which is triggered if a specific notification appears in Action Center. How can I do this, or is this even possible?

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    Action Button and Panel Missing From 'Task Scheduler'


    Solution (for me anyway).

    • *Start + R and type %appdata% <enter> to open roaming folder
    • Browse to Microsoft, then MMC
    • rename the file taskschd to taskschd_old
    • Open task scheduler - this will create a new taskschd configuration file in %appdata% with default settings.
    • Delete taskschd_old (if you want)
    • Don't untick all options in View/customize view or you get stuck again Can Task Scheduler open apps trigged in background by Action Center? :)

    Task schedule is not opening

    Were you able to find the file in the location it said to delete it?

    Are you able to get into the Task Scheduler to click on Library, scroll down the list in the center to find that Task to disable it on the right hand panel?
