    Schedule task not repeating.

    I am pulling my hair since yesterday, looking on google but nothing found, I have a very similar issue about this post on superuser Windows 10 task are not running.

    I also try to set up the schedule on start up and it will just execute once, then the repeating schedule is not triggered. It even doesn't have an error. It will just say "The operation completed successfully.(0x0)".

    Please help me, thanks.

    BTW this is my first post here.

    Hello, welcome to tenforums. Could I suggest anyone who tries to answer this needs more detail.

    Please post a screenshot of all relevant parts of your scheduled task specification, including conditions, triggers and what you are scheduling.

    Also one of your event manager like that on the superuser page you posted.

    Also a screenshot like this please:

    This is the only event saved on the task scheduler folder, the operational log is empty.

    All the non repeating task is working normally. I also deleted some of my tasks and test tasks.

    I created the 3 task task 1, task 2 and task 3. Then restart the system, then wait for more than 5 minutes before taking the screen shoot.
    First on the google update it should repeat every 1 hour, but the last run time is on 2 pm.
    The task 2 should run on start up, but i don't know it didn't run. because on my previous test, it runs.

    I was just starting using windows 10, around last November. then I just notice that some of my task is not triggering when i check my backup yesterday.

    Hello, you need one successful run of your task triggered by the system (not manually) before repetition can start.

    Focus on one task which is set to repeat. Can you see that it has run successfully once after e.g. logging on?

    Please provide a screenshot of all details of that task. E.g.

    I can confirm I see tasks repeating in my scheduler history, also that this question has occasionally been asked over the years as you'll know, I expect.

    Please note: forum rules forbid 'thread bumping and useless one-liners' - thanks.

    In Task Scheduler, Enable All Tasks History

    If history is enabled you can look at the History tab of any task that ran since history was enabled to see each step in the task
    Look at each step in the task and see if there are any errors

    I don't know if there is a tutorial for this with pictures and better instructions, i couldn't find one

    Ohh my task history is disabled, I thought the logs is from the event viewer.
    I will reply later with my task schedule history.

    This task never runs, even it has a next run time, it just past the next run time and add 5 minutes on the next runtime, even the system is already running for more than 30 minutes.


    btw sorry for the one-liners thread bumping.

    In the task Settings tab
    Enable the Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed
    See if that makes a difference

    From what i can see in the screen prints
    the task was registered on 2/21/2017 6:34 PM
    the task is scheduled to start on 2/21/2017 4:00 AM
    maybe it missed the first scheduled start because it was set to start before the task was registered

    and the test 1 and test 2 successfully run the task at first.
    But on the test 2 even the next run time is changing every 5 min, the last run time is still the same even after 20 minutes. While the test 1it only managed to run it first schedule at startup and there is no next run time available.
