Open Any Program On Desktop With Tasker

Windows Desktop

I chose to have Jarvis on me at all times with my phone. But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be able to control my desktop. With this profile, you will be able to open any program on your desktop with Tasker.

For this tutorial, we will be using Tasker, Autovoice, Join and the Unified Remote app. You can also just skip the tutorial and download the profile at the end of the post. But we would strongly advise reading through the tutorial anyway. You can download the Unified Remote app here:
