Limit macro scope to just the WinXP desktop?


Recommended Posts

I created a macro activated with the middle mouse button and with scope of 'Program Manager' (click the Select button when defining the Scope). Clicking the middle mouse button only activates the macro if another window does not have focus. That is the way the Scope works. If another window has focus, the macro will not activate.

i set the scope to explorer.exe and it seems to work well limiting the macro to the desktop/taskbar. but are there any potential problems with this that i'm not aware of?


That's exactly what I would have tried first... explorer is everything desktop, if you kill it you can see that when it auto-recovers. I can't imagine a better way.
