Powershell script opening on notepad instead of running on schedule task

Hello All,

I have set up a schedule task to run a powershell script on a scheduled time, but instead of running it opens up on notepad.

Any ideas why this is happening?

When you created the script, did you give the script a  .PS1  extension ? (rather than .txt extension)
or have you associated the .PS1 extension with notepad?

A full path like c:\myscripts\myscript2.ps1 rather than just myscript2.ps1 must be called

You can make sure PowerShell is used by explicitly calling it. That is, use
   powershell -file c:\folder\script.ps1
