Windows® XP Task Scheduler
What are the benefits of using the Task Scheduler in Windows® XP?
The Task Scheduler in the Windows® XP system is responsible for the timely execution of tasks, such as running Disk Defragmenter and carrying out site monitoring. The scheduled tasks ease the use of the operating system. It helps the user by allowing the system to perform tasks that need to be executed at the time that the user wishes them to.
The benefits of using the Task Scheduler in Windows® XP are as follows:
- Schedule programming
- Control the entire system programming
- Ease of use of the operating system
Tasks in the Windows® XP operating system can be scheduled for default system tools as well as user-defined programs. The scheduled tasks can be selected through a simple wizard. The Task Scheduler once set, runs in the background with the other applications of the Windows® XP system. The tasks can be scheduled by setting the period and frequency by which it needs to be run on the system. Once a task is scheduled, the system will automatically run the program when it is time.
Control the entire system programming
The users or the administrators have complete control over the system programming, even when they are not physically present on the system. Once the system is scheduled, the users need not be around. The processes that would interfere with the daily work can be executed later with the help of the Task Scheduler. The Task Scheduler can be paused from its programming and resumed later, as and when needed.
The Task Scheduler makes it easy to use the operating system. It is an important tool that can be used to set and run programs as and when the user needs to. The administrator of a set of consoles can use the Task Scheduler to run the system cleanup and other tune-up tools. The use of the Task Scheduler improves the usability as well as the efficiency of both the user as well as the Windows® operating system.
