Question Windows Defrag and Disk Cleanup

Is there a way to set up a schedule for both of these to run automatically?
I have already tried to set it up via the Scheduled tasks in Windows, but this just brings up the window, i need it to automatically run as well, is this possible?

u can create batch files, for defrag its easy as ****, but disk cleanup is harder, here is the batch files i use for defrag
@echo off
defrag c: /f
For disk cleanup its harder, i remember kind of how to do it. You have to run a disk cleanup from the command prompt but with a ":#" after the diskcleanup then after that you can create a batch file that refrences that set, just google it and you should find it

I would just do it manually once every few weeks. Easiest way.
