  • I loved this exercise! For some reason I couldn’t get the new window open and when I did the robot was typing in the wrong notepad screen. I used the hot key to set up a new window, added a delay, and then added the attach window to make sure the robot typed where it should.

    • Hey Francis. You’re well past this Beginners Course then Thanks for the feedback. When making a course like this, it’s always a tradeoff between simplicity and going into details (covering every edge case). If I ever (sorry WHEN I) make a 10-hour course, I should definitely talk about making the solutions more robust like the one you state above. Have a great day. Kind regards, Anders

  • Great, cool stuff. Even as a new beginner, its more than enough material.I
    The version i downloaded is actually newer than what you used in the video with new and changed features.
    Thanks, you are highly valued!

    • Hey Alofun. Thanks a lot 🙂 Yeah, they change versions quickly. Let me know if you have any questions. Kind regards, Anders
