I have several .bat files I want to 'schedule' to run at a set time each day.  I know it can be done and can't remember how to do it.

Thank you in advance.

You can set up separate scheduled tasks for each of your batch files.  Or you can create a single batch file that calls them (or group them)

Without knowing specifics...
From a command prompt:

schtasks /create /ru system /sc daily /st 11:00:00 /tn MyBatch1 /tr "cmd /c c:\pathtofile\MyBatch1.bat"

repeat/adjust as needed.

The GUI is in Control Panel - Sheduled Tasks if the command line is too difficult.
