Mini Mouse Macro is a tiny and portable software application that can record and play macros with mouse and keyboard actions.
Thanks to its intuitive feature set, the tool is mainly catered toward less experienced users.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the executable file in a custom directory on the hard disk and just click it to run.
There is also the possibility of saving Mini Mouse Macro to a USB flash disk or similar storage device, to be able to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.
An important aspect to take into account is that the tool does not add new entries to the Windows registry or Start menu, thus leaving no traces after its removal.
At startup it creates an icon in the system tray area. The main window is pretty intuitive, stays on top of other windows by default, and minimizes to the tray (a notification pops up).
From this point on, all mouse clicks and key strokes are monitored and listed in the main frame, where you can view their coordinates, time and exact action. Clicking a button starts the recording session.
It is also possible to track mouse movements and show the animation during playback, enable loop mode when playing the macro (it exits the second the user intervenes), as well as add a custom entry in the list by specifying the position, time and action.
Macros can be saved to file, so Mini Mouse Macro does not ensure just one-time macros. You can adjust their speed and build scripts (advanced users).
The tool does not hog system resources, consuming low CPU and memory. Its response time is pretty good when rapidly typing or clicking. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation. In a nutshell, Mini Mouse Macro packs a decent range of features for first-time users when it comes to macro recording.
