Windows 7: How to locate a task you created in the Task Scheduler

I created a task recently in the windows 7 task scheduler and I couldn't find my task after I created it. I saw other people were having problems with this too so I just wanted to point out one way to find your task again.

Open up the Task Scheduler (windows orb, search for task scheduler) and assuming your task is running look at the bottom of the window in the section named Active Tasks. Look through those tasks until you find the task you created.


If you need to edit your task
After locating your task double click on it. You can review it in the window show, but in order to actually edit it you need to click on the properties option located on the right hand side.


And there you have it, you have successfully located your task and you can modify it now.

If your task isn't running I am not sure now to locate it. I will try to figure that out later.
