How do I Auto Start Programs?

  User-4CC88CE5-DA27-44EE-A0310A8D232498A3 12:38 21 Apr 2006

I would love to know how I auto start programs and get them to a certain point.

I understand that dropping them into START is the beginning .. but what if I want to simulate some keystrokes so that when my PC boots up, I am ready to roll on the screen (ie data entry) I want?

Sound ambitious can it be done simply without using proprietory software.

If you have a document template that you want opened up, you can do that - wrod, excel etc will allow you to create a template that will open and by using macros you can have some data already in.

Can you try to be a little more specific in you needs and more specific help may be possible?

Specifically, I have a terminal emulator program that I have to run MOST occasions that I go onto my PC .. it's a real fag having to select F1, TAB 3 times, enter 3, TAB 4 times, enter 99, etc.

At the very beginning (until new data is enetered) the sequence of key presses is the same.

So I would like to have all the progams I use, opened and ready to g..g..GO! When I need them without having the laborious process to go through everytime.

The sofware in question is nothing specific, but it is quite DOS based.
