Windows Macro Recorder is a small application which allows you to record any action you've done on your computer. All the information is recorded in a Macro file. When the Macro is played back, all the recorded actions are replicated, including the mouse movement, clicks and so on.

The program consists in just a small toolbar with six buttons (stop, play, record, repeat, open, and save). The toolbar can be placed in any part of the screen; but if other windows are open, it becomes difficult to access the toolbar, because it may turn out behind all other windows, and it cannot be set to be always on the top. To record a Macro, you just need to click on the Record button, and the application will start recording until you press the Stop button. After this, a message will indicate that the recording process has finished. You can play the macro or save it to a file. If you press the Repeat button, the Macro will be cycled.

Another disadvantage I found is that the windows or programs used when you were recording a Macro have to be in the same position during playback; because if not, the desired actions won’t be performed.
