Sometimes we have to perform repetitive tasks in Windows like clicking on certain buttons, typing something in a textbox again and again etc. These tasks not only make you frustrated and tired physically but also mentally. This is where freeware TinyTask comes in. TinyTask is a free software that can automate recurring tasks by recording your keystrokes, mouse movements and clicks and then playing them back. It can play the recorded sequences of keystrokes and mouse events once or repeatedly in a loop.
TinyTask is a freeware that provides quick and easy automation by recording your keystrokes and mouse events and then playing them back. The sequence of keystrokes and mouse events can be saved in a file to be played later. The program supports adjusting the speed of playback too. A new feature added in the latest version of the TinyTask freeware is the ability to create an EXE file for a keyboard and mouse event sequence. Running this EXE file file would automatically plaback the recorded sequence. You can share this EXE file to your friends who do not have TinyTask on their computer.
You can download TinyTask from the vTask Studio website. The download is only a 33 kilobytes long EXE file. The TinyTask program is a portable standalone application, so you do not have to install anything, need any framework or runtimes in order to run it. You can just double-click on the downloaded file tinytask.exe to run it.
Using TinyTask is very easy. Just click on the record button to record your keystrokes, mouse movement and clicks. Click on the record button again to stop the recording. The default hotkey to start/stop recording is Ctrl + Alt + Shift + R. When you have recorded a sequence, you can play it back using either the play button or the hotkey Ctrl + Alt + Shift + P. You can click on the compile button to create an EXE file that can be run to playback the recording automatically. Of course, the recorded sequence can be saved in files to be played back later.
In the options for TinyTask, you can select the speed of playback (fast or normal), set it to play the recording repeatedly for a set number of times or infinitely. You can also change the hotkeys for recording and playing back to your own choice (you can select from F8, F12 or PrintScreen).
