Task properties define the settings and conditions for running a task. A task will run if all of its conditions are met after the task is triggered to start. Conditions are divided into three categories: idle conditions, power conditions, and network conditions. The conditions for a task care displayed on the Conditions tab of the Task Properties or the Create Task dialog box in Task Scheduler.

Task settings specify how a task is run, stopped, or deleted. The settings for a task are displayed on the Settings tab of the Task Properties or the Create Task dialog box in Task Scheduler.
