Hello,
I am wondering how I would go about recording all key strokes typed while my program would be running in the background (tsr?)
Any help at all would be great.

First you have to know which form has the focus, then under the event sub "KeyPress" you can tell which Ascii character has been pressed, the following is an example:
Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    MsgBox chr$(KeyAscii)
End Sub
To try this example, paste the code into the decleration part of a Form and then Press F5.
