Mouse Recorder Pro 2 is a utility program that can record the exact movements of your mouse cursor, as well as every click you make. Once you've made your recording, you can play it back. Mouse Recorder Pro 2 will replicate your cursor exactly. Mouse Recorder Pro 2 is a minimal program, that does not consume much in the way of memory or system resources.
Launch Mouse Recorder Pro 2 from the Start menu, or from its desktop icon.
Click the "New" button. This will create a new mouse recording (script).
Hold down the "Alt" key on your keyboard. Press the "1" key on your keyboard. This will begin the recording process. Alternatively, press the "Record" button. If you want to capture a specific series of cursor movements, the keyboard option may work better.
Move your mouse. Mouse Recorder Pro 2 will record mouse movement, as well as any mouse clicks you make.
Hold down the "Alt" key and press the "1" key to stop recording.
Press the "Play" button to play back the script you recorded. Alternatively, you can hold down the "Alt" button and press the "2" key. Mouse Recorder Pro 2 will replay your mouse gestures and actions. Remember that mouse clicks will affect programs. For example, if you double-click on a program to open it, playing the script will open the program again.
Click the "Save" button to save this script. You can later load it and play it back.
