Mouse and Keyboard

"Mouse and Keyboard" Actions are used to simulate the human User's use of the mouse and keyboard. This group includes keyboard Actions such as "Send Keys", to simulate human typing, "Press/Release Key" to combine the use of modifier keys like Alt and Control with mouse operations or other keystrokes, and "Set Key State" to toggle lock keys like Caps Lock, on or off. Control of the mouse is achieved through Actions like "Move Mouse" and "Send Mouse Click". Actions like "Move Mouse to Image" provide specialized mouse operation. "Block Input" can be used so that Processes ignore the User's mouse and keyboard input and avoid interference with their mouse and keyboard operations.
