    2 Task Scheduler questions

    A shortcut address of Task Scheduler is %windir%\system32\taskschd.msc /s.

    1. What does the /s do?

    2. How can I make a shortcut to open Task Scheduler to Task Scheduler Library/XUAC (or other subdirectory)?

    Hi tcebob

    Found this on stackoverflow.com

    %SystemRoot%\system32\taskschd.msc /s
    Older versions of windows had a splash screen for the MMC control panel and the /s switch would suppress it. It's not needed but doesn't hurt either.

    Sorry can't answer part two.

    Thanks, Caledon Ken. I deleted the /s and it works just fine. And I saved 765 bytes per command!
