There are times when computing seems to repetitive. It’s tiring and the repetition makes you feel that you need to get away from your computer. The snag is, you need to get the work done, so you’re in a catch-22 situation. Worse, some of these tasks need to be performed outside normal hours or from a remote computer, so you find that you’re limited by bandwidth when you attempt to login and administer your machine from another location.

One option is to create a task-orientated process that you can use automate various routines. For instance, if you find that you repeat the same task, you could set up a macro that will repeat this task for you, using the same mouse movements and keystrokes that you would use to finish this task.

xStarter is a tool that you can use to automate your tasks and processes. You can use it to set up your own Windows macro and then use the scheduler to run a task, outside normal hours. If you need to remotely access your machine, instead of trying to perform a task from the remote location, you can simply run the previously-created macro.
