Hello Expert,

Have created a task called PowerShell.
But when I look for it I can't find it. Have looked in
the Task Scheduler Library for an hour. There
is a folder called 'Games' but it is not in there.
There is a folder called 'Microsoft' which has a folder
called Windows that has a lot of folders and files
Found C:\Windows\System32\Tasks\ and found my
files. So I created a new folder and pasted the files
into the new folder but the folder does not show up
in the Task Scheduler GUI
Whats up with thi thing?

Thanks.

In the graphical interface, we can only see tasks that we have access rights to see.
Open an elevated command prompt and fire:
schtasks |findstr /I powershell

Click on Task Scheduler (Local) - the first link on the top left - then you'll have a tab called "Active tasks", below "Overview" and "Task status"

There, in that list, should be your task.

Double click on it and you should be able to modify/delete it.

HTH,
Dan
