When it comes to simplifying the process of performing common tasks, Windows include the Task Scheduler component that can be used to run programs and operations on a regular basis. While this is an undeniably useful tool, it is also somewhat limited, and this is where xStarter can help.
The program is an advanced scheduling tool that can be used to automate a huge number of tasks and processes so you don’t have to perform them manually. xStarter allows for complete control of the scheduling of tasks so they can be started at a precise time and repeated if necessary. The program can be installed as a Windows service so scheduled tasks can be run even if you are not logged into your user account.
As well as performing basic operations such as launching programs or commands at a particular time, xStarter can also be used to record macros to allow for greater automated interaction with applications. Reports can be sent out via email and the program allows for web based actions such as uploading and downloading via FTP.
xStarter can also be used to perform actions with local files and folders, such as comparing the contents of folders and keeping them synchronised. This is a vast improvement on Windows' take on task scheduling, allowing for far greater flexibility and customisation.
