Creating a scheduled task in Windows Task Scheduler to run a batch file is relatively straight forward. Create a batch file, open task scheduler, create a new task, add an action and create a trigger. After running the task, nohting happened. Eventually it turned out to shcedule a .bat file to run, I had to specify the “Start in (optional)” path when choosing which program to run. It should point to the folder containing the .bat file. Otherwise the .bat file will not run.
