    I have a script that I've used to delete pretty much all the usual scheduled tasks that are started by Windows. I've never had any issues doing this in the past or have this disabling cause any issues with any components.

    Something in this list is causing me to not be able to type into windows dialogue boxes--can't type wifi password, can't use windows search bar in settings app, and many other windows text boxes.

    Can someone please tell me which one could be the culprit?? Can someone please tell me which scheduled tasks are absolutely required and which ones are completely safe to delete??

    Try re-enabling "\Microsoft\Windows\TextServicesFramework\MsCtfMonitor" and reboot.

    Why? All it does, that it enables Windows keylogger and typing within MS apps like store, Edge, calc, etc.

    Code:
    schtasks.exe /Change /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Chkdsk\ProactiveScan"
    
    It checks SMART and HDD's health.

    Code:
    schtasks.exe /Change /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\PI\Secure-Boot-Update"
    

    If you use secure boot, you should keep this one.
