Hold Down Key Action—Setting Properties

The Hold Down Key action is used to hold down a key for several steps or during mouse action. It must always be used with a Release Key action; otherwise the key will be held down for the remainder of the Windows session. If you simply need to hold down the key for a single keystroke or keyboard shortcut combination, use the Send Keystrokes action.

  1. From the Task Builder Available Actions pane, open the Interactivity folder and double-click the Hold Down Key action or drag it into the Steps pane.

  2. Click to select the keys to hold down.

  3. To set the Description tab properties, refer to Description Tab Options.

  4. To set the Error Causes and On Error tab properties, refer to Step Error Handling.

  5. When finished, click OK to save settings and close the properties dialog window.
