Do you want to know when someone login to your laptop without knowing you?
Windows has powerful inbuilt application ‘Windows Task Scheduler’ by using it we can create multiple tasks. It’s very simple to create a task with the scheduler. It involves three steps
- Name and Description of task
- When it will trigger
- What will be the action
Name and description are just for your information. The next step is when do you want to trigger the task. The action is what you want to do when some event triggers.
