Windows 10: Autofill sign in and password to an app or program? Solved

    Autofill sign in and password to an app or program?


    Is it possible to have my sign in and password automatically entered in an app or installed program on my PC? The app is R Player Plus and the program is R player They are basically the same thing just one is from the app store and the other is from the website that I had to install, They are both media players for DRM protected WMV files(which i paid for). When media is selected a box pops up and wants username and password, I am trying to find a way to make this automatic. I have tried countless password managers but they only work when you are using a browser which isn't the case here. If anyone knows f a soulution or a password manager that will work outside of a browser please let me know. Thank you very much

    You didn't say which password managers you had tried. Have you tried Password Safe available at pwsafe.org

    It does have an autotype feature. I don't use it but I know it is present.

    First question, do you need the uername and password to be secure so that nobody can see them, like a bank log in

    If NO then have a look at AutoHotKey it should work in most software and applications

    For your log in you would use a code like this, rpp stands for R Player Plus
    Code:
    :*OR:rpp::USERNAME{Tab}PASSWORD
    You could add an {Enter} at the end after your password in the code if pressing the Enter key will usually complete the log in
    You would type rpp in the UserName text box then AHK would change it to your UserName, {Tab} (Tab key) takes the cursor to the Password text box where it inputs your password
    You could also create a HotKey or combination HotKeys instead of typing rpp but best to read up on that in the tutorials at the AHK forum, you must be careful not to 'break' hotkeys that already exist

    Once installed you will find a gazillion other uses for AHK and most of these can be put on the same script which can be launched at startup if you want.
    All the Bold and URL addresses in this post have been inserted using AHK it's much easier and faster than using the editor. I also have a script that launches a collection of documents and software that I need to use when I first start the computer in the morning.
    AHK is wonderful software and free

    Goodluck
