In MS Windows, if the History tab of your task from the Task Scheduler is disabled, then do the followings to enable it:

  1. Run your Task Scheduler as an administrator.
    MS Windows - Task Scheduler - Run as administrator
  2. Right-click on Task Scheduler (Local) and then click Enable All Tasks History.
    MS Windows - Task Scheduler - Enable All Tasks History


You can also enable the History tab of the Task Scheduler from command prompt too. However, ensure that you run it as an administrator.
