How can I schedule a task to run more frequently than 1 minute (ex every 10 seconds)

I have a scheduled task in Windows Task Scheduler that I need run more frequently than every 1 minute. The smallest increment available in the "Edit Trigger" window is only one minute. Can someone provide step by step instructions on how I can configure my task to run more frequently than one minute.
