Often, you might find it necessary to automate many miscellaneous tasks that are fundamental to the Microsoft Windows operating system.

This functionality is critical for processes that perform actions like printing or implementing system tasks, such as running DOS commands or running applications.

By automating these tasks, users can perform them in a faster and more reliable way, while maintaining full control of the operating system. For this reason, WinAutomation provides two distinct groups of actions that allow users to perform system tasks.
