  2. Find the menu you need and click OK.
  3. In your script will be added the code like this:

ExecuteMenuItem(‘notepad.exe’,’New’);

This code will click on “New” menu in running notepad.exe.

Known limitations:

  • The function will ExecuteMenuItem will work only with default system menues, if application use some custom designed menu, it will not work;
  • The ExecuteMenuItem command addresses the menu by menu name and application name, so if there are more than two applications with the same .exe name are running, then RoutineBot will execute action for the first application only
