    Start Maintenance From Desktop Shortcut?


    Hello,
    As it is now, I have this desktop shortcut shown below.

    Click image for larger version.

ID:	224635 .
    Which opens to the page seen below.
    However, I still need to click on "Start Maintenance".
    In order to activate Windows Maintenance.

    I was wondering, if a shortcut can be created.
    Which will start the maintenance process.
    Without first having to open the aforementioned page.
    Located at:
    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Security and Maintenance,
    and then clicking on the provided "Start Maintenance" link?

    Hello George,

    If you like, you could create a shortcut using the command below to directly start maintenance.

    MSchedExe.exe Start
