Windows 7: keyboard combination for common item paste

28 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1
keyboard combination for common item paste

Can you set up a key stroke combination to enter a phase/password/info in Win &7so as to quick paste commonly used info ( email address - common password, etc) to automatically paste the info into various web site forms/login etc ?

Is the there widget or something that will allow me to set up a 2 or 3 stroke keyboard combination to regularly paste info I use over and over again ?

Thanks TRinAz

For only forms, something like Roboform or Lastpass can do that

RoboForm Tutorials - Form Filler: Filling Your Information into Online Forms with One Click

These are secure. You can autofill with the Google Toolbar, but I don't know how secure that is

You can type commonly used phrases with Autohotkey

AutoHotkey: macro and automation Windows scripting language

If you do some reading, basic scripts to paste text with chosen key combos are not that hard to write. Or there are many precompiled scripts that you can use. Years ago I wrote a script for commonly used phrases when I worked at home. Basically Ctrl+ i would type out If you need assitance, call the manufacturer , or similar. It was just a matter of making various key combos (not using combos used by windows, lol) into 1 script that runs at startup. Every time you press that key combo while the script is running, the desired text is inputted. I am sure there are limitations on length, and you'd have to see if they can fill a form on multiple lines.
