    Task Scheduler Question

    One of my desktops will not let me schedule a task using my Microsoft Account. Instead, it shows the Desktop account assigned under System Name in System Information. I am signed in with MS Account and it is the ONLY user showing under Control Panel Users, but Task Scheduler thinks the desktop account controls it. I want to set up a startup for SpeedFan, but I can't due to this permission situation. What have I done incorrectly - the other desktop doesn't have the problem and allows me to use Microsoft Account user to make scheduled tasks. Any suggestions to overcome this? Thanks!

    Update: I found the solution - there is a place in Task Scheduler to change user - updated that all is well now.
