Get-ScheduledTaskInfo [-TaskName*] <String> [[-TaskPath] <String>] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit<Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-ScheduledTaskInfo [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-ScheduledTaskInfo cmdlet gets the last run-time information for a scheduled task. You can use the TaskName parameter to specify a scheduled task, or you can use the InputObject parameter to specify the scheduled task.


-CimSession [<CimSession[]>]

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-TaskName <String>

  • This value is required

Specifies a name of a scheduled task.

-TaskPath [<String>]

Specifies a path for a scheduled task in the Task Scheduler namespace.

The root folder in the file path is described as \. If you do not specify a file path, the cmdlet uses the root folder.

-ThrottleLimit [<Int32>]

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShellr calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.


This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,OutBuffer, PipelineVariable, and OutVariable.

  1. Get run-time information by using a task name:
    PS C:\>  Get-ScheduledTaskInfo -TaskName "\Sample\SchedTask01"

    This command gets run-time information for the scheduled task named \Sample\SchedTask01.

  2. Get run-time information by using an input object:
    PS C:\> Get-ScheduledTask -TaskPath "\Sample\" | Get-ScheduledTaskInfo
       In this example, the Get-ScheduledTask cmdlet gets all the scheduled tasks in the path \Sample\, and pipes the 
       results to the Get-ScheduledTaskInfo cmdlet.
       In the second part of the command, the Get-ScheduledTaskInfo cmdlet gets the run-time information for all the 
       scheduled tasks in the path \Sample\.
