Windows script for automation

Go To


About 20 years ago, when I used MAC, it had the ability to let you perform some actions in applications and saved the actions to a script that you could just double-click to execute again.

Is there something like this for Windows 7?

ex; I need to switch between 2 sound sources on my computer. Right now, I have to load the control panel, select sound and make the changes. It would be cool to have a script I could just double click to do this for me.

Have you tried Autoit or winautomation?

Windows also has an automation API:

Thanks. I accepted your answer because I see there apparently is not any functionality like I described above, and these are the closest thing. I was hoping to find something much easier since this is a simple task that only requires a few clicks - Lee Loftiss 2012-04-07 04:53
Yeah, scripting in windows is something of a sorry situation - A B 2012-04-07 05:24
Thank you for reminding me of winautomation. Great piece of software - Danny Beckett 2013-05-23 02:35
