What is a Task Scheduler on Windows 10
Task Scheduler is a tool that helps to create a basic task and advance tasks automatically. There is no restriction to use this task scheduler. Everyone can use it.
Some of the apps are using this task scheduler for maintaining tasks like disk cleanup, updates, etc.
By using this Task scheduler, you can start, run the application and execute the commands at a specific day, date and time. Also, the application can start and run when a particular event occurs.
You can create a scheduled task by using basic and advanced settings with a particular date and time.
When you are using Basic settings, then you can create a Basic task. Similarly, When you are using Advanced settings, then you can create an Advanced setting.
Different ways to create a Schedular task:
You can create a Schedular task by using two different ways such as:
- Create a Basic Task using Task Scheduler
