Use the Filename field to specify the full path to the file where the set of your mouse movements / clicks and/or keystrokes will be saved. After you click the Start record button, the window of xStarter will be hidden, the operations will start being recorded, in the lower-right corner of the desktop there will appear a window informing you that the recording process is in progress and that it can be stopped with the Ctrl+Alt+F12 key combination.

You can also Stop recording with the Ctrl+Alt+Del key combination (you will not restart the computer if you use this combination only once).

To execute the recorded macro, you should leave the name of the file with the recorded actions in the Filename field and save it as an action. When the task with this action is launched and it comes to executing the action with the recorded macro, all the operations saved in this file will be carried out.

Note: It is not recommended to record how you enter any of your passwords, as it can result in an unauthorized access to the data / software that you keep protected.
