+1 Good answer. This will ensure that the task is run on the same day every year. – jmort253 Jan 30 '11 at 3:56

There isn't an option in the Task Scheduler to run a task annually or yearly; however, you may still be able to do this.

  • In the Basic Task Wizard, select "Daily". You should see the screen shown below.

Enter number of days between recurrence of Task

  • In the "Recur every _ days" field, enter 365.
  • Continue entering the details for your task as normal.
