    Hi, I am new here and would like some help with keyboard macros.

    Most macro or hotkey software seems to be geared toward launching programs, or opening folders. I do not need or even want that.

    Rather, I need to type a phrase a lot, and would like to assign a key to do that.

    It would also be ideal if the phrase could be maintained encrypted, but I bet that is asking a lot.

    #1) While I think this option is a low probability, it would be ideal:
    I understand there is a microprocessor in the keyboard, and it would be great if there were a utility whereby I could reprogram the actual keyboard such that my computer never knows I am not simply typing keys.

    #2) second best idea.
    Setup Windows such that I do not need a TSR program running in the background to reprogram a key to enter a phrase. Maybe alter the system registry or something. I know this can be done to change a single key to another key, but I don't know about entering a phrase.

    #3) have a VERY SMALL TSR that will do the job. Recommendations?

    Thanks in advance for any help here.

    Mark.

    Thanks, Elizabeth23:

    I researched all you suggested, I think I had found all those previously.

    I am trying something called AutoHotkey, but am not sure it will work for me.

    Really, I wanted it to enter passwords for me, so I wanted it to be secure, and none are.

    Although I did come up with an idea, I have some old bar code readers. I can print bar codes without the text below, then I can scan my passwords as I need them from a sheet.

    This allows for my passwords to never be on my machine and allows for easy access.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this for me,
    Mark.

    Okay, wish I could help more, other than using a random generating password program, post back if you find a solution to your issue. :)

    Try phrase express. It do have the macro thing that you are looking for but you need to have the older version. I think the newest one is not working with xp anymore. www.phraseexpress.com/
