    How do I create a Macro for my laptop keyboard?

    Hello, I recently discovered this article that says that I can make macros using Microsoft's programs. How-to: Keyboard Macros | Microsoft Accessories
    I downloaded the Mouse and Keyboard Center, but no Keyboard or mouse is showing up when I open the program. Am I missing something? Like a download for my built-in keyboard?
    Thank you in advance.

    It looks like the Mouse and Keyboard Center info relates solely to Microsoft-branded keyboards yet you appear to be using your laptop's keyboard.

    Macros are also known as 'automation'. Have a look at AutoHotkey or AutoIt - 2 of the more well-known 'automation', i.e. scripting languages/methods... although there are also many more dedicated automation products available. Just Google windows automation software

    Hope this helps...

    Okay, thank you very much!
    I'll check them out and see what works,
    I was hoping to get the official Microsoft program to work, but if it cannot, I will try alternatives.
    Thanks for your time and help.
