Macro Recorder

Macro Recorder 5.8

Record keyboard and mouse activity on your desktop

Macro Recorder is an automation utility created for users who need to record keyboard and mouse activities as macros for later. This program might prove to be of good use if you need to complete repetitive tasks on your Windows PC.

The application comes with a user-friendly interface, features easy-to-configure recording settings, and allows you define global hotkeys for starting and stopping the recording of your keyboard and mouse activity. What's more, it allows you to edit the recorded commands if necessary.

You can preview the recordings before saving them to your local directories or converting them to EXE format. The application also enables you to create scheduled tasks using the recorded and saved macros. Unfortunately, the utility doesn't provide you with an option to disable the scheduled macros from its interface. You need to launch the Task Scheduler app, a default Windows program.

Also, this version of the program comes with a limited amount of features. For example, you cannot add C# code snippets to macros, convert the entire recording to the EXE format, etc. You need to upgrade to Pro or Premium version of the app in order to unlock the aforementioned features.

Still, this application is one of the best macros recorders I tested on my Windows PC. It's effective, simple to handle, and works 100%.
