    Windows 10 - cannot add exec to Startup in Task Manager

    I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 already installed. I am trying to add an exec to the startup list but Win10 will not accept it. The exec runs successfully on my Windows 10 machine if I start it manually.

    Steps I've taken: Task Manager, Startup Tab, File>Run New Task. (browse to location, select.) It will start immediately, but does not show up on the list to autostart, nor does it start on reboot.

    Any suggestions?
     
  3. I cannot access Windows Update or Backup or Task Manager in my Windows 10 computer.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows Insider Builds.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the operating system, we will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • Have you made any changes to the operating system prior to this issue?
    • What is the error message/ error code that you receive with respect to Task Manager?
    • Does this issue persists in Safe mode as well?

    Try few of the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to boot the computer in Safe mode and check if the issue persists.

    Refer: Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10


    Follow the steps to place the computer in normal mode.

    • Press Windows + R keys to open
      Run command.
    • Type msconfig and press
      Enter.
    • In the System Configuration window, click on
      General tab.
    • Select Start-up selection as
      Normal startup, click on Apply
      and Ok.
    • Follow onscreen instructions.

    Step 2: I suggest you to end the Windows Explorer process and create the new one.

    • As Task Manager is not working press Ctrl+Shift+Esc
      and check if Task Manager pops-up or press Ctrl+ Alt+ Delete and check if it helps.
    • Under Process tab, search for Windows Explorer.
    • Right click on it and click on End task.
    • Click on File in the Task Manager
      at top left corner of the window and select Run new task.
    • Type explorer.exe and click on Ok.

    Step 3: I suggest you to Run SFC scan.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.
    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Hope it helps. Try the above and update us the status of this issue for further assistance.

  4. Task Manager no longer on my computer

    Managing 4 Single-Task Computers

    *sigh* Let me simplify things.



    I'm in charge of managing 4 computers. These computers only need to run a few specific tasks.

    Problem #1: Is there a fast way to make a change to all the computers? Because right now, if I have to update something, I have to do it 4 times.

    Problem #2: Is there a way to lock Windows (XP) down so the only thing the user will be able to do is the few specific tasks? I think Group Policy may be helpful here...?

    Details in post 1. Thanks.
