    That's an unusual thing to be missing. Are you sure you are in the right spot? Can you post a screenshot?

    Open Task Scheduler, click on Task Scheduler Library to see tasks, right click to get options or use Action from the menu.

    There's multiple ways to open Task Scheduler.

    Use Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Task Scheduler.

    Use Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Scheduler.

    Use Server Manager -> Configuration -> Task Scheduler.

    Use the Run box and enter taskschd.msc.
