Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Windows 7 is there a way to record keystrokes to play back with a shortcut key combination, such as, Ctrl+Alt+1?  I want to record strings that I can use repeatedly regardless of the application.  Probably not possible, but I thought I would ask the Pro's.

  • AutoHotKey is powerful and will fill many of my needs...launches programs, sends keystrokes and mouse clicks, etc.  Works great and is obviously easy to use since even  I was able to make it go.   Only disappoinment, and I'm probably asking for the impossible (considering security issues), is that I can't fill in the Username on Login screens.  I have a number of applications and tools that require username and password to activate and was hoping to be able to press a "hotkey" to fill in the Username and password.

    Thanks for the info.
