What Does Macro Express Do?
Macro Express® is the premier Windows macro utility. With Macro Express, you can record, edit and play back mouse and keyboard macros. Its powerful
tools and robust features will make you more productive.
Macro Express allows a macro to be executed in several ways. These include the use of Hot Keys, ShortKeys, Timed Macros, Window Activation and Popup Menus.
A Hot Key is a set of keys on the keyboard that are pressed to initiate the macro. This could include pressing CTRL+ALT+R or CTRL+F12 or any number of combinations.
A ShortKey is a small string of characters. When a matching combination is keyed in from the keyboard, it is erased and the assigned macro executes. For example, with a
Shortkey you could type the small string #add and have Macro Express type out your complete address.
A Timed Macro is one that executes on a given time schedule.
For Window Activation, a macro runs when a specific window gains focus (appears) on your computer.
A Popup Menu is basically a list of defined macros. Once the list is showing, you click on the desired macro or press an associated number or letter to execute the macro desired.
