Examples

Example 1: Enable a scheduled task

PS C:\> Enable-ScheduledTask -TaskName "SystemScan"
TaskPath                          TaskName                        State
--------                          --------                        --------
\                                 SystemScan                      Ready

This command enables the SystemScan task in the root folder.

Example 2: Enable all scheduled tasks in a folder

PS C:\> Get-ScheduledTask -TaskPath "\UpdateTasks\" | Enable-ScheduledTask
TaskPath                          TaskName                        State
--------                          --------                        --------
\UpdateTasks\                     UpdateApps                      Ready
\UpdateTasks\                     UpdateDrivers                   Ready

This command uses the Get-Scheduledtask cmdlet to get all scheduled tasks in the \UpdateTasks\ folder. It pipes this information to the Enable-ScheduledTasks cmdlet, which enables these scheduled tasks.
