Can someone please recommend a simple Windows 10 script which will cause the password to be entered into the relevant field when the program is started?

Many thanks for all suggestions.

It's not THAT simple. Scrips after all, are programs. And programs do things
very specifically. You'll have to provide more details.

Thanks for replying. I have an active logon screen for an app I use. The username is already entered. I need to enter the password.

The app links to Excel, so if it can be done from Excel script it would be nice. If not I can use a Windows script via batch file.

Thanks again for helping me out.

Try using the limited GUI & keyboard automation functions of the
`WScript.Shell` object. i.e. activate the password dialog window, and send
the keystrokes for the password. Send keystrokes to navigate the dialog
input to make sure the input focus is on the password field.

OK, should the sendkeys command be used for this?

Thanks again for your help.
