    automation of windows tasks

    In windows 3.1 (I think), you could record windows tasks into some kind of a script format. I need this for windows 98, 2000, XP.

    Example :
    Start recording
    Click start menu
    Click programs
    Click microsoft word shortcut
    open document
    print document
    close word
    stop recording.

    When the script is run in future, it will do the same sequence of events (ex. printing that document).

    Is there any software out there that can do this (maybe record into wsh format ?) ?

    A better and more relyable method is to learn Windows Scripting Host.....preferably with JScript as its closer to C syntax than VBScript
