Overview

Quick Macros is a robust automation solution for Windows that gives you the ability to design, develop, and distribute miniature applications that automate repetitive tasks efficiently. This software makes a great addition to the toolset of anyone who is trying to increase productivity in their daily computer endeavors.

Installation

Installing Quick Macros is a simple process that any computer user can perform, especially if you are skilled enough to use basic development platforms. Lith a file size of only about 40 MB, the download process is very brief, as is the setup.

Interface

The user interface is packed with features that can be accessed via self-explanatory button icons located along the top of the main window. A navigational pane on the left side lets you quickly access the various components of your macro projects, which are displayed within the center frame of the window after being selected. In the top right you can open previously created items like menus, functions, toolbars, and macros. Ultimately, anyone with basic macro creation skills will find the interface to be extremely comfortable and functional.

Pros

  • Offers a plethora of macro commands that can be integrated into your custom automation tools, including the ability to automate the control of user interfaces, application launching, file and text management/processing, and custom dialog creation

  • Convenient keyboard/mouse recording module lets you record input actions and then replicate them within a macro

  • Programming language includes total API support, so you can seamlessly integrate other applications with Quick Macros

  • Facilitates the automation of file management by giving you the ability to open, run, delete, copy, find, display the properties of, and compress any type of file in your operating system

  • Set your macro to manipulate windows by resizing, closing, activating, displaying properties, and moving them

  • Automate internet tasks like webpage interaction, filling out log in forms, extracting data, downloading files, conducting FTP transfers, and sending automated e-mails

  • Manage the opening and closing of windows, fill data fields, and perform any other function available within any type of window

  • Automate administrative tasks like performing backups, monitoring processes files, and system logs, automatically installing applications, and shutting down, restarting, locking, and idling your operating system

  • Offers double-sided functionality, serving as both a comprehensive macro production suite and a proprietary IDE programming platform.

Cons

  • Nonprogrammers may find the user interface to be a bit cluttered, and it may take some time for novices to become acquainted with functions of the various button icons

Alternatives

Other similar macro creation suites include MacroMaker, AutoIt, TestComplete, and Quick Macro. Of these alternatives, AutoIt is the most popular and powerful. Like Quick Macros, AutoIt also includes its own proprietary programming language, so choosing between the two may be simply a matter of personal preference.
