6. When prompted, enter the amount of time you wish to unmanage these items and click Ok.

7. Click Save Task and save it to the desired location. You should receive a prompt providing the path of the CMD file for the task. Note this path and click OK.

8. Back in Unmanage Task Editor, click Open Task Scheduler on the top-right.

9. Click Action > Create Basic Task. Give the task the same (or similar) name as the XML file saved on step 9 and click Next.
