Detailed Description

The Enable-ScheduledTask cmdlet enables a disabled scheduled task.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Examples

Example 1: Enable a scheduled task

This command enables the SystemScan task in the root folder.


PS C:\> Enable-ScheduledTask -TaskName "SystemScan"
TaskPath                          TaskName                        State
-------- -------- --------
\ SystemScan Ready

Example 2: Enable all scheduled tasks in a folder

This command uses the Get-Scheduledtask cmdlet to get all scheduled tasks in the \UpdateTasks\ folder. It pipes this information to the Enable-ScheduledTasks cmdlet, which enables these scheduled tasks.


PS C:\> Get-ScheduledTask -TaskPath "\UpdateTasks\" | Enable-ScheduledTask
TaskPath                          TaskName                        State
-------- -------- --------
\UpdateTasks\ UpdateApps Ready
\UpdateTasks\ UpdateDrivers Ready
