Requested as a codingsnack, on this thread, where mouser eventually suggested a central download to avoid people getting an older version by accident.

Send KeyStrokes and MouseStrokes to another application, starting that application if needed.
Since 3.2.0, the -f strokesfile mode has some minor scripting features to:
- wait for a window to open or close, with timeout
- display a message
- goto a specific labeled scriptline
- gosub a subroutine and return from there

Planned Features
Based on (applicable) user requests.

Unzip all files to a subdirectory of your liking. Check out the readme to get acquainted with the command syntax.

Using the Application
Determine what keystrokes and/or mousestrokes to send to an application, and configure that either in a batchfile, 'run-link' or 'external command' from another software tool that supports running a command-line tool. Hint: one of my other tools: WinButtons, has support for sending keystrokes using -send command :)
Use as applicable... ;)

Remove all files from your computer. Nothing is written to the registry.

Known Issues
Any bugs to report?


I am new to this tool and I can not figure out how to disable debug window appearing.

"C:\Progiz\WinSendKeys\WinSendKeys.exe" -w "Write:" "write something"

I get a window "Debug" "Help: 0 Cmd: 3"... after clicking it, keystrokes are sent...


Can you show your WinSendKeys.ini file, please? (wrap it in a [ code=ini] tag, without the extra space, please)

Oops, my bad, just checked the source and saw a left-over MsgBox at line 206.

Fixed, please use the attachment to this message, I'll update official download tonight., original download updated.

WinSendKeys 3.0.5

Ok, tnx for fast response. How do I make file mode (-f) work. Is this text file? What should be in it?
I can not make it work...
