is there a way to automate  logging into shopify, and changing an option and logging out with a script?

Is there a way to create a script to log me into my shopify account, and literally make one or two clicks (option changes), and log out?

I need to do the same things every week, and I would like to know if there's a way to automate that?  In contacting shopify, they don't allow us to make any changes to the API,
so we can't do it that way.

unfortunately there is not an automated way to do it via the SHopify UI.  the only way I Can see to do it would be to create some sort of Macroo using a 3rd party program.  the benefit of doing this is that if you have a process you do the same steps on every week you can simplify it down to 1 or 2 clicks.  the bad part is that it has to be the exact same process in every detail, it has to be done from the same computer every week,and finally, it is very difficult to edit once created.
here are a few macro creators if you are interested in doing that method.

As @Sean says you need a third party app, I would suggest the imacros extension :

It gives a flexible way to do what you want through scripts.
