    According to the help information when you create a basic task many optional features of a task area set to default values automatically. Unfortunately, it appears there is nothing specifically listing the differences just generalities. If you are interested in the exact differences why not create a simple task such as just opening Notepad using both methods.

    Hi Joe, what a clever idea, I found that using 'Create Basic Task' gives easier access to available options.

    Create Task offers more features such as a few additional triggers compared to the 'Create Basic Task' wizard, such as: 'At task creation/modification', 'On connection to user session', 'On disconnect from user session', 'On workstation lock' and 'On workstation unlock' etc., etc.
