A hundred years ago, machines first arose to automate routine operations that humans didnt want to do. It is now the 21st century, and what do we see?
How many exactly identical, exactly routine «point-and-click», «switch-and-type», «drag-and-drop», «cut-and-paste» operations do you perform on the desktop of your computer every day? A lot, I guess. But shouldnt the computer SHORTEN the number of such operations instead of increasing your workload? Well, the computer CAN do what you think it should, but with some additional tricks. Namely, with software like Macro Scheduler.
Macro Scheduler is an excellent automation tool. First, it allows you to record any amount of actions (windows switching, mouse clicks, keystrokes and so on); then, a full-featured macro language allows you to program actions of any complexity. There are commands to interact with windows, with the clipboard, with the network, and so on. Even non-standard programs and websites can be analyzed and automated with the excellent Image Recognition functions. This power can be further extended with Microsoft VBScript, ActiveX controls and custom dialogs (visual designer available). Macros can be run by Macro Scheduler (by hands or by schedule) or even compiled to stand-alone EXE files!
