    How to run a program in task scheduler?

    I have installed Speedfan and it won't run at the windows startup, so I tried to schedule it in task scheduler, I am not familiar with using it and wondered if there is a guide for W10 64 anywhere or if anyone can tell me how?

    Many thanks in advance! John.

    In Start type "Task Scheduler". In the window that opens up click on Create Task and it will open the window that would allow you to enter all timing frequency etc. information. You could also click on Create Basic Task and it will walk you through each of the steps required. Post if you have any issues.

    Yes, I'd tried it several times but couldn't get it to work until I selected the option to have it start at logon.. (Default=Startup..) High priority selected too.
