If you spend any time reading our site, you know that we like anything that lets us save our precious time or cut some of the boring, repetitive elements out of our workflow. Our overworked brains especially like it when these apps are are easy-to-learn and easy-to-use.

Push The Freakin' Button Pro is right up our alley!

PTFB Pro is the perfect tool for automating tasks, reducing keystrokes, and best of all, getting rid of all those nagging automated requests that pop-up at the most inopportune times.

In effect, PTFB Pro is a "don't show this again" option for the many prompts and messages that don't have one of their own. Just tell PTFB Pro what buttons to press and when -- you'll never be bothered again!

And then there's the built-in macro recorder. It can record and playback complex sequences of mouse and keyboard actions, allowing you to quickly cut long repetitive tasks down to size.

PTFB Pro can periodically check to see if a program is currently running on your system. It can launch the target program if it isn't running or restart/close the program if it is.

PTFB Pro can even help keep interruptions at bay when you're not at your computer. Use it to keep attention craving applications from running in your absence, to fill out login fields, or even to keep your Internet connections alive!

Please note folks, the latest version brings the following new features: Visual Triggers, Greatly improved command line control for better integration with Powershell and other script shells, Control the clipboard, Track when a macro was last used and easily archive little-used macros and Instantly test your settings on the “Identifying the Target” page. You can read more about these here

This promotion includes the following:
PTFB Pro - Single License v5.1.2.0 ($39.99)
PTFB Pro - 5 License Value Pack v5.1.2.0 ($144.99)

Dunking Not often I comment on apps I've acquired via BDJ, but this one deserves a mention. I originally acquired it for the sole purpose of clicking 'OK' in a Skyp popup dialgog that warns about a trouter or something (can't remember because PTFB Pro has meant I don't have to deal with it any more!). As you might have guessed, it worked great and I then discovered other things that needed its attention, and... well, it's now an indispensible tool for my day-to-day PC use.

This is one of those apps you don't realise you need until you use it to fix something you didn't realise needed fixing. I encourage a test drive a while before the offer day since it can take a bit of time to appreciate its benefits.

Andrew Griffiths How much of a drain is this on CPU, memory, etc., please?

Susan Westlake Hi Andrew,
For CPU, that's going to vary hugely with things like:
- how many macros are set to trigger automatically
- how many of them use visual triggers, which are a bit more costly
- high tightly (faster) or loosely (slower) each macro's identification settings are
- how much grunt your cpu has

The bottom line is that PTFB gives you lots of controls to minimize the cpu hit: you can reduce the response speed (number of checks per sec), make your macros do more fast easy checks on candidate windows, and let PTFB Pro identify and disable macros that haven't been used for a long time. As a guide, one of our PCs has a decent Intel I5 and 100 or so macros loaded in PTFB; it typically shows about 0.2% cpu in Task manager.

Memory-wise, the same install consumes about 11mb. This goes up temporarily if you open the help file or open a macro for editing, but it goes back down afterwards.

DH007 Is it portable?

Susan Westlake Hi DH007,

On Windows 7 and later, PTFB Pro really needs to be installed in the official Program Files folder in order to function correctly, as it's marked internally as an "assistance" app (Windows will curtail its ability to act on certain target windows otherwise).

However, there are facilities for putting some/all of your macros on a shared space and having them load automatically from there.

bvssunnydale Hi, (1) my biggest irritation with Windows is that when I'm working in app "A" another app 'B' will pop up and steal focus. Can PTFB do anything to help with this specific issue? Also, do you think the macro functionality can copy from a cell in Excel and move specifically to my accounting software, paste the contents of the Excel cell and then go back to Excel, tab over to the next value, and repeat the process (until I tell it to stop obviously). Thanks much.

Susan Westlake Hi bvssunnydale,

For the first part, if you get PTFB to close app "B" then focus should automatically revert to the window that previously held focus. I find this to be much less of an issue with later versions of Windows however; 7 and especially 10 are quite good at making the intrusive app wait (though the flashing taskbar is an irritation in itself).

For the second part, it's certainly possible but I'd recommend using a screen-based macro and driving the process through keystrokes rather than mouse actions, as they're not position-dependent. Also, this might be a good case for triggering via hotkey (you would certainly want to turn off the automatic trigger for this!)
