How to Add or Remove "Task Scheduler" from Control Panel in Windows

information   Information
The Task Scheduler enables you to automatically perform routine tasks on a chosen computer. With this service, you can schedule any program to run at a convenient time for you or when a specific event occurs. The Task Scheduler does this by monitoring whatever criteria you choose to initiate the tasks (referred to as triggers) and then executing the tasks when the criteria is met.

This tutorial will show you how to add Task Scheduler, also known as taskschd.msc, to the Control Panel in Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do the steps in this tutorial.
