Why dont I have all the scripting options available?

In an older script task, I can add a step by clicking on "Add..." and I get 19 options of steps including things like "Create a message window..." and "Delete a registry key..."

I just created a new script today and I only have 5 options.

1. Kill a process....

2. Launch a Program...

3. Log a message...

4. Unzip a file...

5. Upload a file.

I was able to duplicate an old task and get these options, but I am wondering why a new script doesn't have all of the options?

Check what operating system you have selected, if all (Windows,Mac/Linux) is selected the list is restricted. But just select windows and you will see the list expand.

  • This fixed it. It was set to "All" operating systems, I selected Windows and the list was back to normal. Thank you! - ISEKOLD 9 months ago

check which type of script you are using (Online vs Offline) since some options are only avaiable for special script types
