Where can I find the scheduled tasks folder so I can make a backup of all the
scheduled tasks and the command lines that I have written?

    Try moving your mouse over the Icon, it should tell you where the program
    is.

    Another way is to click Start and Search,
    Click All files and folders,
    Type - scheduled tasks - and hit enter.

    It's usually buried down in documents and settings.

    This will open the Scheduled Tasks folder.

    Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Click on Scheduled Tasks

    This will also open the Scheduled Tasks folder.

    Start | Run | Paste this in the box and click OK...

    file:///::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

    That one looks easier to type. ;-)

    Have you seen what the shortcut on the Start Menu looks like?

    %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
    ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30
    309D}\::{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

    {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} is My Computer
    {21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} is Control Panel
    {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} is Scheduled Tasks

    I know about the Start Menu GUID but have never thought about a shortcut for
    the Start Menu. Here is another shortcut

    explorer /e,::{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D} is My Network Places
