What is a Macro Recorder
What is a Macro Recorder?
A Macro Recorder, as is obvious from the title, is a tool that records macros. A macro is a sequence of user actions (mouse moves, keystrokes, clicks etc.) which can be replayed later as a "script". The primary purpose of any macro recorder is to do the work instead of a human. It's a bot that performs all the repetitive actions for you.
Here's a list of the "must-have" features every good macro program should have:
- Mouse & keyboard recording
- Variable playback speed
- Macro-editor that allows adjusting a recorded script
- "Eyes" - it has to be able to find images on a screen, detect when a Window has moved etc.
- Looping - playing multiple times
