How To Schedule a Task
This lesson explains how to schedule a task in Windows XP. Being able to schedule a task in Windows gives you a lot of control over your machine. For example, you can set a schedule for backing up files, defragmenting your hard drive, or running anti-virus or anti-spyware scans. The best part is that you can set these tasks to run when you aren't using the computer (i.e., when you are asleep or at work). A scheduled task can be set to run every day, week, month, etc. and at any time of the day.
Tasks are scheduled a little differently on a Windows XP machine vs. a Windows Vista machine, but both are relatively easy to set up.
