Hey Microsoft Guru's,

Please can you help with the following issue.

Group Policy Lockdown for Task Scheduler to prevent task creation and prevent viewing property pages of existing tasks is not working.

We are trying to lockdown users from being able to create new tasks in Windows 10 task scheduler and to prevent users from viewing the property pages of existing task scheduler jobs in the Windows 10 Task Scheduler using the standard Group Polices provided by Microsoft to do this.

However when we set the following Group Polices they do not have the desired effect and users can still create new tasks and view the property pages of existing tasks in the Windows 10 Task Scheduler.

We have tried both Computer Configuration and User Configuration policies as below but neither are working.

Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Task Scheduler

Hide Property Pages

Prohibit New Task Creation

User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Task Scheduler

Hide Property Pages

Prohibit New Task Creation

The property pages help for the policies above state the following.

Requirements.

Windows Server 2003, Windows XP and Windows 2000 Only

We are attempting to get these Group Policies working in a Windows 2016 Server and Windows 10 Workstation Environment.

Please can you let me me know if anyone has successfully managed to get these polices working in a Windows 2016 Server and Windows 10 Workstation Environment.

Many Thanks in Advance for your help.

Dan
