You can use Windows PowerShell to find scheduled tasks and get the queued status of scheduled tasks in Windows 10/8.1 and Windows Server. Let us see how we can do it using the Get-ScheduledTask cmdlet.
Find Scheduled tasks Queued status
Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting language, built on the .NET Framework, designed for system administration, IT professionals and developers. Windows 8.1 comes installed with Windows PowerShell 4.0 which hosts many new features designed to make its language simpler, easier to use, and to avoid common errors.
The Get-ScheduledTask cmdlet gets the task definition object of a scheduled task that is registered on a Windows computer.
You can use Windows PowerShell to determine what scheduled tasks are running in the background, says The Scripting Guy. To find the status of Scheduled Tasks, use the Get-ScheduledTask cmdlet and sort it by the state:
Get-ScheduledTask | sort state
This is useful if your Task Manager shows a lot of processes running and you’d like to see them.
You can use the following command, which will get you a list of scheduled tasks along with some information about them:
Get-ScheduledTask | Get-Member
This will list the Properties and Methods of a Command or Object.
You can get more details about the Get-ScheduledTask cmdlet on TechNet.
