Request password in Scheduled Tasks


When you want to use the “Scheduled Tasks” in Windows to launch a program such as hours or days, a password is requested / required so that the scheduled task is executed.

How do I make it no longer required?


We must change the registry.
It is necessary to know that changing the registry is risky!
If you are sure of what you do, go to the next step, but in all cases, save it !


Now you have to launch the Registry Editor (Regedit):

  • Open the Start menu, click Run, type regedit and confirm with Enter.This window opens
  • Unroll the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Lsa
  • Double-click limitblankpassworduseand change the variable by assigning the value 0
  • Click OK, reboot and voila! The password will not be necessary to use the scheduled tasks.
