Automating tasks is one of the sure-fire ways to improve your productivity but it can also be one of the most complicated. One tool which has made my life a lot easier in this respect is VistaTask which despite the name, has nothing at all to do with Windows Vista OS. The developers claim that they registered the name over 10 years ago before Vista was even a twinkle in Bill Gates’ eye. VistaTask basically provides advanced automation for Microsoft Windows controlling every aspect of your computer, such as the mouse, keyboard, and web surfing without the need to write any programming code or record any macros.
This could be useful in a number of situations not least simply speeding up your general work flow. Alternatively it’s useful for those that have to test software regularly, IT administration jobs, repetitive data entry, program installations, or recurring internet tasks. The program has actions available to automate all aspects of the Windows grouped into clear categories such as Keyboard, Menu, and Files. You can Drag and Drop the actions to quickly create automation scripts making this one of the easiest automation tools you could wish to find.
