    Where are my disabled tasks located in Win 10?


    Guys, I just got a Win 10 computer, and I am in the process of starting to prep it for moving all my old files over from my XP computer (using PCmover).

    One of the things PCmover told me to do was go into Win 10's Task Scheduler and disable the tasks under the Active Tasks tab, which I did.

    But now I can't find those disabled tasks to enable them after I complete the PC-to-PC file move. They've disappeared completely. Can anyone please tell me where to find those disabled tasks?

    Thank you!

    If you just disabled them they should not of disappeared, sure did not delete them ? Recall where they were in task scheduler (folder) which ones they were. Most options are in the actions pane.

    Yes, thank you, but I am very sure. Also, since there is only an 'Active Tasks' tab visible, I can understand why the tasks that I disabled disappeared, but I just don't know where they disappeared to...

    Hello Cotter, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you can use the command below in an elevated command prompt to see the status of all your scheduled tasks. Check to see which ones show as "Disabled", then check to see what "Folder" they are in. The folder location is where you would look in Task Scheduler for them.

    Thank you Brink! I guess Microsoft likes to leave something imperfect in all their OS's. What a step back for such a simple operation.

    Best Regards,
