    To delete a scheduled task, follow the steps below.

    1. Open Task Scheduler, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Task Scheduler.
    2. Right-click the task that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
    3. You can also remove a scheduled task by selecting a task in the details pane, and then clicking Delete on the File menu.

    Go back into Scheduled tasks, right click the scheduled task and chose Delete from the context menu

    Or select the scheduled task by single clicking it and then click File then Delete.
