    Task Scheduler disabled

    I was setting up Windows 10 on a clean install. The only user I had was my Microsoft account. I tried to set up a task for regular restore points, but the scheduler was greyed out and wouldn't let me. I searched the web and found nothing that helped. Then I set up a local account and that one worked fine.

    Can scheduled events not be set up by a Microsoft account since it isn't a local account?

    I have a MS account and I can open the task scheduler. So that (presumably) removes the idea you can't with an account. But I have no ideas why you can't open it.

    Chuck,

    With all the different versions of Windows 10 in the wild you need to tell us which version you are trying to install. Also, whether it is Home, Pro, or Enterprise.

    Joe, I just (an hour ago) ran an Insider update and am now running Version 1511 (OS Build 14279.1000). I went then to my MS profile and it appears that the Task Manager is working now. Whether that is a result of the update...?
