RemoteKeys - hundreds of Windows automation commands

Posted by ClifNotes, Oct 2008, permalink Automation Tools


Years ago, I used a free PIM (personal information manager) called QeepIt. While I was at the author's site, I also found a free Windows Automation tool called RemoteKeys, but I had never tried it until very recently. The RemoteKeys interfaces look pretty old-school, but the number and quality of the automation features make up for the looks.


There is a very good tutorial included with this program to help you get started. Just look for the "Tour.exe" file and launch it. RemoteKeys is a small download and it's also portable. All you need to do is unzip it and run it.

Quote from the website

RemoteKeys can automate complex control systems, but also simple jobs like inserting text passages into Word and EMails, filling out (internet-) forms with recurring phrases etc. To do this simply click onto one of the 2500 buttons, which can be freely assigned and labeled. The macros can also be released by using the keyboard if prefered.

For those wishing to make full use of RemoteKeys, there are over 350 commands available, e.g. inserting the actual date into a text, opening program groups and ordering them on screen or even to automize Excel calculations. The buttons may be assigned with the help of the integrated macro recorder and an integrated timer can activate these buttons.

Additional features include an image memory and a clipboard history function. RemoteKeys is always at hand in the systemtray, can be individually configured (button-, form-, fontsizes and -colours), is network - able and requires no installation. (Engl./Ger./French with manuals)..
