Given the ease of use of Task Scheduler, opening a web page with Task Scheduler is a simple task. In such cases, you can use the Task Scheduler.

Detailed instructions:

First, open the Task Scheduler. To do so, open the Start menu, search for “task scheduler” and click on the result. You can also run the command “taskschd.msc”.

Once the Task Scheduler is open, click on the “Create Basic Task” option in the right sidebar.

Enter a name and description in the “Name” and “Description” fields. Click “Next” to continue.

Next, select the task trigger of your choice. A trigger is nothing more than the time at which a task should be started. I chose “Daily”. This means that the task will be started daily.

Next, you will be prompted to configure additional trigger settings. If you select “Daily,” you will be prompted to configure the start date and the number of times the task repeats. If other trigger options are selected, other trigger settings may appear.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want the task to run as soon as you start your computer, select the “At logon” or “At computer startup” option.

Select “Run Program” and click “Next”.

Click the “Browse” button, select the browser exe file and click “Open”.

After adding the browser, enter the URL in the “Add Argument” field. Click “Next” to proceed.

Confirm the settings you have just made and click “Finish” to complete the task creation procedure. You have successfully used the Task Scheduler to schedule the Web page to launch at the required time. To verify that the scheduled task has been executed correctly, right-click on the schedule and select ” Run “.
