    I am having trouble scheduling a simple operation in task scheduler. All I want to do is to restart (close it and start it again) an application every 4 hours. Is there a simple way to do this?

    go to scheduled tasks, file, new, task, right click on task and choose properties, click advanced button as circled in picture and then place a checkmark in the repeat box to ungrey and place your time there.

    I've tried that but it just opens another instance of the program. I need to restart it every 4 hours which means the scheduler would need to close the program then start it again.

    I fail to understand the difference, when a task is finished, the program is closed.

    what you can do is start a bunch of scheduled tasks for the same program, and set the time for 4 hour difference in each task,

    I will search around to see if this can be set up as you desire.
