Scheduled Tasks - Eliminating Most is a Good Thing

Recommended Posts

We've all seen lists of services and advice on which to disable, etc., but something I don't see discussed much is the list of Scheduled Tasks.

In the Task Scheduler there is a huge tree of hundreds of tasks that Microsoft has preset to do various things.

Depending on your personal needs for Windows 10, many can be disabled.  Lo and behold, doing so makes your system more controllable, and less apt to override changes you've made.  It only makes sense.

This is my list of scheduled tasks, from my Win 10 test system which completely shuns cloud integration and Apps entirely.  It's set up for pure traditional desktop operation and it really works well:

You can retrieve your list of scheduled tasks with the command:  SCHTASKS /Query /FO CSV

I would do it after open powershell or some app that use dot net so it will make the files to run it fast

My understanding is that the compilations are done just in time if not done ahead of time, but that the results are retained in the files.  So only the first .NET run will be slightly slower.  Do I have it wrong?

If registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache is deleted then nothing can be typed in metro apps (like edge). Anyone knows what scheduled tasks are needed for keyboard input to work in metro apps?

I did mention that I shun almost all Apps, but I do seem to be able to type okay into the Settings App with the TaskCache job deleted.

I was meaning to go through the list of scheduled tasks on my Windows 8 system, and just never got around to it.  I'll look at that this evening.

Keeping in mind that each person's and system's need is different, for what it's worth this is my list of scheduled tasks and their statuses for Win 8.1.  As usual, the devil is in the details, so gauge what you see as compared to your own very carefully.

@Noel. I know this is an old post, but does the "\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\SvcRestartTask","N/A","Disabled" work after an Office app is launched? I've seen conflicting information online about whether disabling this service remains sticky.

Don't confuse disabling a scheduled task with disabling a service.  I have the osppsvc service on Manual.

On my systems the osppsvc service still starts up AOK when an Office 2010 application (e.g., Outlook) is run.  I don't know about newer versions; 2010 is the one I use. 

Perhaps the "\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\SvcRestartTask" scheduled task shouldn't be disabled.  The name implies it might fix things if a service exits abnormally, though I'm not seeing that happen at all, so for me the task remains disabled.

That reminds me, there's a registry tweak that gets the osppsvc to exit after a small amount of idle time if no Office application is running:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform]
 "InactivityShutdownDelay"=dword:0000000F

If registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache is deleted then nothing can be typed in metro apps (like edge). Anyone knows what scheduled tasks are needed for keyboard input to work in metro apps?

    You need the \Microsoft\Windows\TextServicesFramework\MsCtfMonitor task to be running for the keyboard to work in most Metro crapps.

Is this the all registry keys that should be kept (td.reg)?

Does anyone know about the task "Pre-staged GDR Notification" (which utilizes notificationui.exe)?  Can this be disabled?

Also "Tpm-Maintenance" raised my curiosity. (under TPM)

In my experience you can disable 99% of the tasks.

i only leave textservicesframework enabled as it's needed to type in edge, settings search, cortana, store, wifi key and any other modern app.

everything else i disable, no ill effects.

i use my pc's for gaming offline / online, music, videos, browsing, vmware etc.

i leave
