Other than scheduling the time for execution to be in the near future, is there a way in the Windows 7 Task Scheduler to force a future task to execute now for the purpose of testing and observing it to ensure it works as desired?

Click on the task in Task Scheduler and hit Run toward the bottom of list of actions on the right pane.

If Run, doesn't appear, go to the Settings tab of the task's properties and check the box that enables run on demand.
