Maros for passwords?


is it possible for me to use windows to memorize a password for me that would type if I had a certain keystroke.

I am not able to articulate exactly well, but what I mean is like type a short cut for a symbol... that is easy... can I do something like that to recall a password.

any help appreciated.

The only native facility Windows has for that is Credential Manager and that shows up when Windows says "Do you want to remember this password?"

I think you're looking for something like AutoHotkey.
AutoHotkey (AHK) is a free, open-source macro-creation and automation software for Windows that allows users to automate repetitive tasks. It is driven by a scripting language that was initially aimed at providing keyboard shortcuts, otherwise known as hotkeys, that over time evolved into a full-fledged scripting language.

You can use AutoHotkey to:
- Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes or mouse clicks, or via COM.
- You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or a recorder

Another free one is AutoIt.

If those passwords are valuable whatsoever don't use AutoHotKey and if you do, make sure there is a means to encrypt the passwords so they're not saved in plain text.  Can you not just use Last Pass?

Second LastPass. Used it for part 3/4 years. It will not, however, allow auto password completion outside the Browser but you can easily copy it from the vault
