Windows   Windows – Configure scheduled task every minute



This time a simple as well as important post. Have you tried to run a scheduled task every minute?

When editing the trigger of a task schedule, there is a section in which the “Repeat task every” parameter can be set, and you have probably noticed that by default only the values “5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour” are available.
Scheduled task every 5 minutes
Scheduled task every 5 minutes

Fortunately, it is possible to configure every certain amount of minutes or hours by typing manually the time.
For example, typing “1 minute” (or “1 minutes” also possible):
Scheduled task every 1 minute Scheduled task every 1 minute

Or any number of minutes:
Scheduled task every 17 minutes Scheduled task every 17 minutes

Or any number of hours:
Scheduled task every 3 hours Scheduled task every 3 hours

Even a combination of hours and minutes. (its not something like “2 hours 30 minutes” as could think). by configuring the total amount of minutes. For example, for 2h30m, the number of minutes would be 150:

Scheduled task combination of hours and minutes Scheduled task combination of hours and minutes
