How can I add Repeat task every “4 hours” to Task Scheduler?
I’m running Win11Pro.
Is there a registry hack or editing some system file/policy which would allow me to set up tasks in the Task Scheduler such that in the advanced Trigger settings I could set this task to recur every 4 hours? I would add it could be extended to any number which would divide evenly into 24, such as 2, 4, 3, 6, 12, but I’m just looking for 4 or 6 hour options.
I believe Windows used to have no problem with manually changing the “1 hour” setting to x hours in the field, but currently it will not run on it’s schedule if I do this. The longest time interval provided is 1 hour, and after that 1 day.
The only option to get around this is inelegant, that is by adding multiple triggers at 4 hour intervals.
I am hoping to add via registry some extra recurrence time options.
I have also posted this on two microsoft sites (learn & answers .microsoft.com), since I’m unsure if this or the other location is the best place to ask this question.
thank you for your time.
