Macro to operate only in a Gmail window

Recommended Posts

I want to have a Macro that runs only in a Gmail window.

But Macro Express Pro doesn't appear to see the Gmail windows. See the attached PDF.

Does anyone know how I could get Macro Express to limit the scope of my macro to Gmail windows?

Rather than using the scope tab, perhaps you can put logic within the macro itself so it immediately does a Macro Return if it is running for the wrong window.

I’m not sure why ME doesn’t recognize the window title. I have a macro that I start from a hot key, to run in both yahoo mail and gmail, and to assure it is not running in some other application these commands work:
If Window Title "Yahoo! Mail" is on top
If Window Title "gmail" is on top

Macro Return
End If

Another approach is to have the macro type Alt-d to highlight the web site’s address line, copy to clipboard, then see if it contains something like this: https://mail.google.com/mail/?tab=wm#inbox
