    The Task exists, I downloaded it, ran it, STILL have the Window visible.

    Surely there needs to be an amendment in the .bat file?
    The batch file is intended to be used with a password. I have a password, and I see no window.

    Paul Black said:
    Also, what about removing the > Please enter the run as password for DESKTOP\<UserName>:, is that possible?
    The following will create the task with a password:Schtasks /create /xml "%【XML】%" /Tn "%【Task】%" /RU "%Computername%\%Username%"

    The following will create the task without a password:
    Schtasks /create /xml "%【XML】%" /Tn "%【Task】%"

    I'm afraid the following option does not work without a password.
    Run whether user is logged on or not

    You may modify the batch script accordingly and see whether it works without a password.

    I removed the /RU "%Computername%\%Username%" and that Stopped the entry on the Setup screen.

    I had already removed the need to enter the Password as I posted earlier.

    I Signed Out and then Signed In and it works great, other that having the CMD Window.

    EDIT:

    That works WITHOUT the Window.

    The coding for that in respect to . . .

    Code:
    
    Set "【Command】=PowerShell"	
    Set "【Arguments】=-c (New-Object Media.SoundPlayer '%【Path】%').PlaySync()"

    . . . is virtually the same.

    I tried adding the Hidden, Minimize, and -WindowsStyle Hidden Parameters to the PowerShell line of code, but it did NOT work. Maybe it needs to be done through a CMD?

    Using the manual method to set this up fails because you HAVE to enter a Password, but with the script you do NOT.

    This looks quite interesting => How to run a PowerShell script without displaying a window?

    Even tried these . . .

    Code:
    
    Set "【Command】=CMD.exe /c Start /MIN PowerShell"
    Set "【Command】=CMD.exe /c Start /MIN PowerShell" -Window Minimized
    Set "【Command】=CMD.exe /c Start /MIN PowerShell" -Window Minimized -command ""

    In the Schema I tried changing the AllowStartOnDemand to Hidden=True . . .

    Code:
    
    %W%"<AllowStartOnDemand>true</AllowStartOnDemand>"
    %W%"<Enabled>true</Enabled>"
    %W%"<Hidden>true</Hidden>"

    Do you mean <Hidden>true</Hidden> can hide the window at your end? If so, I can modify the script accordingly.
    I see no window at my end, so I can only rely on your observation.

    If CMD is used, you will see a CMD window.

    Unfortunately NOT.

    I tried investigating the Schema to see if there was a <Control> or <Trigger> that might help, but I couldn't find one.

    Basically, I ONLY removed the %W%"<LogonType>Password</LogonType>" and /RU "%ComputerName%\%UserName% from the ORIGINAL code because I do NOT have a User Password, which works.
