For example, to specify to hold down SHIFT while E and C are pressed, use " (EC)". To specify to hold down SHIFT while E is pressed, followed by C without SHIFT, use " EC". To specify repeating keys, use the form {key number}. You must put a space between key and number. For example, {LEFT 42} means press the LEFT ARROW key 42 times; {h 10} means press H 10 times. Note You can't use SendKeys to send keystrokes to an application that is not designed to run in Microsoft Windows. Sendkeys also can't send the PRINT SCREEN key {PRTSC} to any application.
