Mouse and Key Recorder is a powerful software solution designed to record mouse and keyboard actions, with support for more than 100 commands.
The interface may seem a bit overwhelming at the first glance, especially because the main window boasts so many buttons and tools, but features are nicely organized in tabs, so it's all very easy to navigate.
The 'General' tab lets you choose the macro file name and configure replay, with dedicated options for loops and line delay. The 'Macro' section on the other hand shows the entire content of a given macro, including mouse and keyboard actions.
A scheduler is also available, so in case you wish to start one of your macros at a user defined time, it's pretty easy to configure it.
Of course, there are hotkeys to switch off and on the recording, all configurable via the 'Options' menu. And speaking of options, it's recommended to have a look in there as well because there are numerous settings available, including a macro hotkey configuration screen and recording preferences.
The supported commands list is absolutely impressive and includes everything from starting applications to adding an offset to the loop number, read file size, create directory or wait for a key.
Just as expected, Mouse and Key Recorder runs on low computer resources and obviously gets along with all Windows versions.
All things considered, Mouse and Key Recorder is a powerful application and although it may seem aimed at professional users, the comprehensive help manual is always there to lend a hand to beginners as well.
