A simple Macro recorder/player for Windows that works across applications
The interface is minimal and this makes the program incredibly easy to use because the user just needs to pick an output file and start the recording.
The main window thus provides just three buttons, “Record”, “Playback” and “Options”, so everything's pretty intuitive.
Although it indeed sports an “Options” menu, the configuration settings are just minimal and include only a few items, all of them concerning the playback process. You can thus set up the application to repeat playback, with a special field to mention the number of repetitions, playback events at recorded speed or playback events at a custom speed.
Other than that, there's not much else to do. Just hit the “Record” button and you're ready to go.
Obviously, since it's all so basic, WinMacro remains very friendly with computer resources, which means you can run it even on older machines without a flaw. It works smooth on all Windows versions, but Windows 7 users need administrator privileges to run it, otherwise it may return a loading error.
On the good side, its simplicity is clearly the ace up its sleeve, but such an application needs many more configuration options, including hotkey support and video options.
But all in all, WinMacro does its job in a pretty simple way and thanks to the fact that it's so light, it can be easily used by rookies and more experienced users with absolutely no problem.
