How do I stop a running macro?

Hold down the Scroll Lock and Pause Keys and release. This will cancel a macro that is playing. Or go to the Options, Preferences, Playback panel and select from several other combinations.

Another way to stop the macro is to right click on the Keyboard Express icon in the Notification Area. The standard icon changes when a macro is playing. Right click on this icon to stop a running macro.

Note: Macros consisting of numerous keystrokes can send the keystrokes rather quickly and Windows will buffer up the keystrokes. Once such commands have been buffered up in Windows, aborting a macro will not cancel them. In these cases, it may appear that the abort command did not work when in reality the macro has already finished issuing its commands and Windows is now processing them.
