Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Task Scheduler


Prevents users from viewing and changing the properties of an existing task.

This policy removes the Properties item from the File menu in Scheduled Tasks and from the context menu that appears when you right-click a task. As a result, users cannot change any properties of a task. They can only see the properties that appear in Detail view and in the task preview.

This policy prevents users from viewing and changing characteristics such as the program that the task runs, its schedule details, idle time and power management settings, and its security context.

note-icon Note

This policy appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both policies are configured, the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.

Tip-icon Tip

This policy affects existing tasks only. To prevent users from changing the properties of newly created tasks, use the Disable Advanced Menu policy.
