    Can't find my task


    I created the " Boot to desktop" task. The only thing I did different was I had it run from the "Start up" instead of after the Log-on. Now I would like to edit it, but when I go to the schedule task it is not listed there. Any ideas where to look for it?

    I don't understand, can give me a little more info. The task actually works like its supposed to ( start the computer, boots up immediately to the desktop). After thinking about it, I would like to edit it and make it run after the log on screen. But I'm not able to locate it for editing.

    I'm don't know what happened to your task, but it's obsolete in Windows 8.1.
    See Option 2.
