Is there any way to schedule a download on Epic Games Launcher?



  • Sometimes I really need to schedule downloads to late at night, but I can't find a way to do this. Is there a feature, and if there isn't is there a workaround?



  • There is no built-in functionality for this.

    You can set the program up to download, and, after it has started, exit the launcher.
    Then create a task in Windows Task Scheduler:

    Windows Task Scheduler - Start a Program

    Trigger it at a specific time (when you usually stop using the PC), or when you start up the PC, so you only have to remember to restart your system when logging off for the night.

    Windows Task Scheduler - Task Trigger

    The rest of the steps are self-explanatory.

    You can find Task Scheduler by searching for it in the Start Menu, or by pressing ⊞ Win+R and running taskschd. msc.

    Once started, it should automatically pick up the download where it left off (it's wise to make a test run before relying on it, though).
