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.

Paste code belov in notepad and save as .vbs file
then add that script to task manager. (afcourse modify to suit your needs)

this script run notepad.exe every 1 seconds for 4 times

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
For i = 0 to 3
      WshShell.Run ("notepad.exe")
      WScript.Sleep(1000)
Next

this runs notepad.exe 6 times per minute, every 10 seconds

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
For i = 0 to 5
      WshShell.Run ("notepad.exe")
      WScript.Sleep(10000)
Next
