Schedule to open website

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I’d like to open a website at regular intervals per day, i.e., the browser should open and automatically navigate towards a pre-set URL.

I looked at options like scheduling to open browser, but I can’t figure out how to open it with a default URL. (No I do not want to make this my start page)

Any help is appreciated

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

You can make a batch script that starts the browser with the desired URL (for example “c:\program files\internet exploder\iexplore.exe ‘http://www.yahoo.com‘” would be valid for internet explorer to open and automatically navigate to www.yahoo.com).
You can then schedule that batch file to be run when you want it to.

Method 2

  1. Use Task Scheduler

  2. Make it launch something like iexplore.exe "http://www.microsoft.com/windows" (replace with your browser’s executable, such as firefox.exe etc.)

Method 3

While, basically, launching Internet Explorer (or other browser executable) is OK, a better solution would be launching the default browser associated with handling URLs.

So you can create the following scheduler action:

Action: Start a program
Program: cmd.exe
Add arguments: /c start http://example.com

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
