      > Hi all,
      >
      > I'd like to present a group of volunteers working in XP Pro with a
      > desktop icon that leads to a "choice menu" like this:
      >
      > _________________
      > | |
      > | Choice 1a |
      > | Choice 1b |
      > | Choice 1c |
      > | Choice 2 |
      > | Exit |
      > |_________________|
      >
      > Only one choice may be made at a time.
      >
      > These choices would lead to:
      >
      > ^!AATWNWBE.exe a.ini
      > ^!AATWNWBE.exe b.ini
      > ^!AATWNWBE.exe c.ini
      > ^!YAATWNWBE.exe
      > ^!EXIT
      >
      > A real plus would be that once an operator has "entered" this box,
      > there would be no way out except to use the fifth choice, "Exit".
      > This would close all open apps including Notetab, and return to the
      > desktop.
      >
      > Another plus would be if the operator was never aware of Notetab,
      > but from my reading in the help file, if Notetab is minimized ^!
      > KEYBOARD may or may not work, and it is used extensively.

      > EXAMPLE:
      > Choice 1a (partial)
      > ;Check if the AATWNWBE program is open. Jump to BringToFront label
      > if found
      > ^!IfAppOpen c:\AATWNWBE\AATWNWBE.exe BringToFront ELSE Next
      > ;AATWNWBE program was not open, so now we launch it
      > ^!Shell c:\AATWNWBE\AATWNWBE.exe /a.ini
      > ;Give it enough time to load (4/10th of a second)
      > ^!Delay 4
      > :BringToFront
      > ;Bring AATWNWBE program to the front
      > ^!FocusApp AATWNWBE
      > :PressKeys
      > ;Set delay of approximately 50 milliseconds between each keystroke
      > ^!KeyboardDelay 50
      > ;Send keystrokes to the AATWNWBE program
      > ;Do this process
      > ^!Keyboard this
      > ^!Keyboard enter
      > ;Do that process
      > ^!Keyboard that
      > ^!Keyboard enter
