Programmable keystrokes

I have heard of these but don't recall if it is the correct name. Things which are repeatedly typed out like email addresses and the like, I recall them being programmed into key strokes on my friends computer. Anyone know how to help me with this? Thankyou.

Yes, I think macros is it, I have never heard of autofill. I have read a little on macros but I don't completely understand it, how to use it rather. I get a bit lost at times when it comes to the exact syntax used to correctly use cmd

Commonly typed phrases or information can be easily assigned a hotkey (IE: Press Ctrl + M to type a certain phrase). Autohotkey is pretty easy to learn to do basic tasks, and they have a ton of pre-compiled scripts

jumping keystrokes
I have a Windows seven 64 bit laptop and when typing, the cursor will jump back to some place else in the text. Very annoying. I try typing slower but it still seems to happen. If I use an external keyboard, the problem seems to go away. I keep my hands away from the laptop cursor controls....
