    I came across this nifty little tool that some of you might find useful.

    AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required!

    I already wrote some helpful little programs with Autoit. You can even compile programs without GUI.

    Just as nifty is http://www.autohotkey.com/. For many years this has been an often used program in my toolbox.

    autohotkey_L is the backward-compatible successor of autohotkey. It's supported in the same user forum. Good stuff in spite of its somewhat unusual syntax.
