    How do I program a keyboard key to print my email address

    There are many occasions to enter your email address. Is there a way to program a key to do this?

    I see you're using a HP laptop....HP (with desktops) used to have keyboards that had special keyboard keys to do just that. I had one that had these had an internet key, mail key, music key and a few others. I've not seen a laptop that had these functions. The only other keyboards that do is are aftermarket keyboards that have the ability to add macros. Where you can assign different functions to a specific key or set of keys. I don't know of any 3rd party software that can do this.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Nothing has worked so far. It looks like macros only work with word processing. I simply want to press a key and have my email address printed since it's so long. Pain to input each time.

    I found a solution to the problem and it works just fine. Go to this URL.

    I convert a .cmd file or a .vbs file to an .exe for .cmd file

    @echo off
    echo | clip the key above the enter key makes the | symbol

    in vbs script

    Dim stringString =""Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")WshShell.Run "cmd.exe /c echo "& String &"|clip",0, TRUE

    For a Shortcut
    cmd.exe /c echo Whatever Text| clip

    I think I get all that Alzio, but don't see what triggers it. In other words, what do you do to get to print? Being fairly dumb this afternoon.
