Automate Simple Tasks on your Computer with TinyTask

Modern computing has penetrated our lives to a large extent. Computers are used to achieve any imaginable task today. But computers are meant to make our lives easier and it can only be made easier when you automate repetitive tasks on your computer too.

In this article we are going to cover a small and very powerful program which not only records the mouse and keyboard actions on your Windows computer but also effortless does the playback and automates the repetitive tasks on your Windows computer.

TinyTask is a small (33Kb) freeware application, which doesn’t require any setup and you can run the application directly. The program lets you quickly record mouse or keyboard actions and performs the playback. TinyTask is very useful when you want to explain something to your friends or to an audience. Using this free tool you can easily create mouse and keyboard actions to explain something to them.

After downloading simply run the application. Click on record Button or press the keystroke to enable recording (you can set keystroke to enable and disable recording from setting menu). Create your desired actions and again press Record Button or press the keystroke to disable recording. By default keystroke to enable and stopping recording is CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+R.

After you have recorded your actions, you can simply play it using play button or save the recording to a file. The application also comes with “.exe” file creation option by pressing the compile Button, which ultimately let you run the action without requiring the TinyTask application. Isn’t that nifty?

In case you created a “rec” file you can run it via command line or via the TinyTask application itself.

Note: At the time of writing this post, the application was not recording keystroke in Windows 8.1, hence we assume the application is not compatible with Windows 8 and 8.1.
