Hey Everyone,
I recently discovered the Tasks function in Windows, where you can tell your computer to do something (such as load a program) at the time of a certain event (such as when the computer boots up).

What I was wondering was is there a way to 'save' the task to something like a flash drive? Basically, I want a certain file on my flash drive to load on startup when the flash drive is inserted into the computer. I could just create a task on every computer, but that seems a little too time consuming.

What you are wanting to do is possible. You can use the task scheduler, but it takes a lot of time trying to set this up. Another downside to it is that it takes a lot of resource from your pc when it is in function but will have to do the scheduler for each pc. You can also do a script using powershell which might be less work and then put the script on each pc.
