Hello, Don't know about you, but about 20 times a day I seems to have to enter my Email for a variety of reasons (and Auto Fill doesn't cut it). Is there a keyboard shortcut (say, 'EM') that I could hit in ANY field regardless of application that would populated my Email, instead of typing it (it's fairly long)? Thanks

Hi Acurtis - I think what you're looking for is a Text Expander.

Text Expanders are amazing and can save you a lot of time. You can use them for all kinds of things like substituting long phrases with a simple keystroke OR a common thing you type like an email address (or password) using the expander.

Here's the one I would recommend - Autohotkey - http://www.autohotkey.com/

Have fun with it!
