Remember The Macro Recorder in Windows 3.1?

Who even remembers Windows 3.1?  Yes, before Windows 95.  Yes, there was a Windows before Windows 95.  And it had a built in Macro Recorder.

Just for fun I dug out an old copy of Windows 3.1 and installed it into a VM.  Here I am recording and replaying a macro using the Windows 3.1 Macro Recorder:

As you can see it was pretty simple. Useful though. And then when Windows 95 came along the Macro Recorder was gone! Luckily along came Macro Scheduler with it’s own Macro Recorder 🙂
