My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I am trying to replicate of what I did, like when I am either doing a data entry on a screen or something similar to that.  is there any easy to use software that would do the job.  Since I am experimenting on this, thus if the app is free to use of if there is a trial version, it will be good.
Thank u.

AutoIT has an option to record what you're doing as a script. And it's free.
The option is called AU3Recorder.

Please note that for anything more advanced you will need to read the manual and learn a bit about autoit's syntax.

You already have a Microsoft product in your Windows\System32 folder named psr.exe  This is the Problem Steps Recorder.

Start the program and click on the help button for a description.   I provided the BOLD in the following text from that help file:
How do I use Problem Steps Recorder?

You can use Problem Steps Recorder to automatically capture the steps you take on a computer, including a text description of where you clicked and a picture of the screen during each click (called a screen shot). Once you capture these steps, you can save them to a file that can be used by a support professional or someone else helping you with a computer problem.

Notes
When you record steps on your computer, anything you type will not be recorded. If what you type is an important part of recreating the problem you're trying to solve, use the comment feature ... to highlight where the problem is occurring.
