  • Hi Jack,

     

    Let's perform the steps below to see if this is the shortcut you would like to have:

     

    1.     Go to Start, type MMC, right-click on mmc.exe, click Run as administrator and then click Yes if the User Account Control pops up.

    2.     In MMC, click File -> Add/Remove snap-ins…

    3.     Find Task Scheduler on the Available snap-ins list -> click Add button.

    4.     Choose Another computer.

    5.     Type the computer name or IP address.

    6.     Click OK.

    7.     Once the wizard is complete, click OK.

    8.     Highlight the Task Scheduler we have just created on the left pane.

    9.     Click File -> Save As… -> type a file name such as "Task" and save it to the Desktop.

     

    Hope it helps.

     

    Regards,
