    How to schedule a task as Standard User?


    I like to run Windows 10 as a Standard User. I use Syncthing to sync my files from my PC to my laptop and another machine. I want to schedule syncthing so that it starts when I log on. However when creating a task, I get a message saying the user doesn't have permission. How should I do this? I've followed this guide but it assumes you are running as Administrator. Starting Syncthing Automatically Syncthing v0.12 documentation

    I've solved it using the second part of the guide, using the shell:startup folder, however I'd prefer to use Task Scheduler if possible.

    You cannot. Tasks have to run with Administrator privileges.
