  1. Scheduled Tasks - Conditions and Settings cannot be set


    Hi. I'm new to Windows 10, but just installed my first instance of Windows 10 Pro on an older laptop with a new SSD.

    Right now I'm configuring the system, installing software, creating tasks, all that good stuff. The user account I'm using is an Administrator.

    A small problem I'm having is that when I go to the Task Scheduler and create a new task, or try editing an existing one, I cannot set any of the options on either Conditions or Setting tabs. I'm creating a task that I want to execute at logon - just something that runs a small utility program. I noticed that by default the Power settings under Conditions have 'Start the task only if the computer is on AC power' enabled, which does me no good on a laptop.

    What exactly do I need to do?

    :)

  2. Windows Task Scheduler runs missed tasks when configured not to run if missed

    I created a scheduled task with the "Conditions" "Start only if the following network connection is available" checked and selected "Any connection". Within the task settings the option "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" unchecked.

    I disabled the network connection and let the scheduled time to elapse. The task did not run due to the above conditions. However when I enabled the network connection the task started despite the setting "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start
    is missed" unchecked.

    Any ideas or is this a bug?

  3. Wakeup task not working in Windows10

    Upon upgrading to windows 10 the task scheduler will NOT wake up my machine. I have tried many different "actions, conditions, and settings". Nothing seems to work.

    Current setting:

    Action Start program C:\\windows\system32\cmd.exe, Argument \c"exit"

    Conditions: Wake to run task

    Settings: None

  4. Scheduled Tasks - Conditions and Settings cannot be set

    Ok. I think I figured it out. Must double-click or right-click and select Properties to edit those settings. I guess the other view is read-only.
