    Task Scheduler: Start a Program with Office

    Does anyone know how to have Task Scheduler start a program to run with the launch of ANY Office application? I have a registry edit which will enable the black theme in Office 2016. It needs to be run each time any Office app opens. I can do this on an individual basis, or just click a batch file before I open anything Office, but it would be very nice to have Task Scheduler do this for me.

    What is the registry edit for that you did? Also what is the reason to want to open another program when you open up a Office program? Task Scheduler is not used for that. You can do it through VBA in Office. Biggest issue with 2016 is that it is a Gui front end for Office 365 on the backside for the Cloud connection.
