How To Create Automated Tasks Using Scheduled Tasks on Windows
Did you know that using the Task Scheduler in Windows 10 can automatically run nearly any task in the Windows 10 environment? Many general PC users may have no idea this is an available feature until diving into the Windows Task Scheduler's rich offering.
Windows Task Scheduling breaks into two primary event triggers: triggering an event at a certain time or triggering an event based on something occurring. By leveraging both of these triggering capabilities, users can gain incredible configuration control over their Windows environment.
If users are looking to get started right away, you can find the Windows Task Scheduler via the Windows Explorer or select the Windows icon and search "Task Scheduler." Through the intuitive interface, users can start scheduling time-based tasks or event-based tasks nearly right away, providing more control and more configuration capabilities over their windows-based environments.
If you are a systems administrator or cloud engineer, and need to automate scheduling tasks on many Windows systems, PowerShell provides an interface to accomplish this task.
