New task created not functioning and not displayed under tasks scheduler.

Hi Experts,
I created today a new task from task scheduler wizard and its not working.
Dont even see that listed under all other tasks!!
However under C:\Windows\System32\Tasks I see it.
How can I troubleshoot this?

What does that mean?  That is a folder, not an app running.

open the task file using notepad and check the xml is proper, perhaps copy it and post the xml here .. put in dummy values for any confidential data

I read on google that tasks get stored there, went to look and saw it there.

Here it is..
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
<Task version="1.2" xmlns="">
  <Triggers />
    <Principal id="Author">
  <Actions Context="Author">

Just to clarify, I'm searching for it at the attached.
Perhaps I'm looking at the wrong place..?

You didn't give it a name, under author you should have  <URI>\Scheduled Task Name</URI> </RegistrationInfo>2018-06-21_13-26-39.jpg

You didn't give it a name,
So are you saying, I should manually add that to the file?
why isn't it there to begin with?
and where do I put the "</RegistrationInfo>"?

David Johnson, CDRetiredCommented:
I have no idea, use the same name that the task is in ..\tasks
bfuchsAuthor Commented:
Did that, now see attached..

David Johnson, CDRetiredCommented:
Delete and recreate the task is all that I can think of right off now.. probably fastest fix

You cannot edit the XML files, they are "signed" after creation. Recreate it. How did you initially create it?

Using the task scheduler wizard, shown on attached above, clicked on create new task..

Hi Experts,

I realized the problem only happens when I use create task option, however when using create basic task.. option then I dont have this issue.
Any idea why?
