A truly amazing application for automation of keystrokes and other computer automation activity.
AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting.

AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes”.
