Configure the Task Scheduler Log

The graphical Task Scheduler has its own event log, which can be viewed like this:

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Double-click the Scheduled Tasks folder
  3. Select the Advanced-item in the menu, and pick View Log

This log can be useful to monitor the activity of the Task Scheduler, and can help in diagnosing problems with a scheduled task.

It is possible to configure the max-size and the location of the log-file:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \SchedulingAgent]
MaxLogSizeKB = 32 (Default = 32 KBytes)
LogPath = “%windir%\SchedLgU.Txt”
