"Macro "


          

My OS is Windows 10 on my desktop and I would like to know if there is any way I can create a macro of my email address so that I don't have to keep typing it every time I log in to my yahoo account or any other website.

Many thanks

If you are just asking how to get to Yahoo mail, simply create a desktop shortcut to the Yahoo address. You will still need to type in your password but you probably shouldn't have your password stored on your computer anyway.

I don't have Yahoo but if there is an option to "Remember Email Address" on the Yahoo page, mark it so that you may not have to re=enter it each time you login.

Jim.

Browser?


Yahoo, has a "Stay signed in" checkbox on their login page.
https://mail.yahoo.com.

That status would be stored in a cookie.


A browser (assuming a particular site allows it) can save UN/PW data, & automatically fill that in.

Yahoo allows that.
All you need to do is to hit return a couple of times.


Otherwise, there are browser extensions (at least for Mozilla) that can fill in UN/PW for you. (I'm not familiar with them.)

Thank you both so much for your help, but it wasn't just Yahoo in which I was interested. It was so that I could hit certain keys in the form of a macro, to enable me to enter my email address on any site, without having to type it out in full.

Is this possible do you know?

Thanks again
