In the windows task management I created a new folder, lets call it "mytasks". I expected to be able to organize new tasks into it by using drag&drop from existing tasks, but somehow that's not possible. How do I move already existing tasks to a new folder/category? Thank you!

Actually it is not possible to drag and drop a task to a new folder or just simply move from one folder to another. You will need to create a new task on that folder. If you want to "move" all your tasks to your custom folder, just export all, one by one, right-clicking on your task and export it to a xml file. After having all exported, just import them again but now right-clicking on your folder and importing taks into it from the xmls.

Thank you, I really would have expected a better usability in that case \: – Mar 30 '12 at 19:49
2… combined with a little powershell scripting should help. – Sean Perry Nov 11 '14 at 18:12
