    Here's an introduction to creating simple and useful macros without the work of learning to be a full-on programmer.

    General Macro Programs

    Thanks for this article. I'm also interested in general-purpose macro programs. In the past, they seemed to be more common but nowadays they seem to be scarce. I have one called Hot Keyboard that I bought years ago and still use. I use it for things like autoreplacing snippets of text and launching apps with a hotkey. Hot Keyboard is years old now and it seems like there ought to be something more up to date with more features. And I'm wondering whether it will continue to work with Win10. Now and then I take a look around but haven't found any good alternatives. Can you recommend any?
