RECORDER is a command-line interface to the Take Command macro recorder. The macro recorder will record and play back keystrokes and mouse actions; you can control the macro recorder several ways:


1.Win-F11 - Start / stop macro recording

2.Win-F12 - Start / stop macro playback

3.Record & Playback buttons on the Quick Access toolbar

4.Record & Playback buttons on the Take Command Tools menu

5.The RECORDER command


When the macro recorder is running, the buttons on the Quick Access toolbar and the Take Command Tools menu will be highlighted. Take Command will also display macro recording or macro playback in an OSD window on the bottom right corner of the display.


If you don't enter any arguments, RECORDER will display its command dialog.


RECORDER will only work in a Take Command tab window. It will not work in a detached TCC window or a stand-alone TCC session.
