    Hello Jeff,

    You could press Windows+R to open Run, then type taskschd.msc and press Enter, or.....

    .......search for taskschd.msc in apps.

    You might see if pinning it to the taskbar after it's open may work for you to make it easier to open next time.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hi there.

    Or you might enjoy this method that Brink has outlined to put Administrative Tools on the Start Menu. I do. I then manually removed the items I use rarely or never after:

    Thanks Shawn,

    as always you are a great help. Did create it in the metro and the taskbar.

    Gman, I pinned that in my favorites now.

    thanks
