Schedule Task – Run batch file at Startup

Creating a scheduled task to run a batch file at startup is a very easy process, but if you miss a certain setting it can be very frustrating.  I have a quick how-to on creating a scheduled task that runs a batch file at startup, below.  This how-to was created using a Windows 2008 R2 Server, if you notice variations on other versions of Windows please comment to help others.  Thank you.

Click “Next

Click “Finish
