Is there an easy way or option to send keys all at once instead of typing each key?

So, Send("hello") would not have to type each key just paste it.

You could probably just make a string constant of "hello" and just send the constant. I think it would work the same with fewer lines of code.

ControlSetText()

If that won't work, then look at speeding up the character typing. Opt('SendKeyDelay', 1) maybe.

If you save the string you want to send to a variable and then send that, I think it pastes it.

$string = "hello"

Send($string)

I use that and I don't think it types it out.

There's no difference between that and Send("hello"), it still does the same.

Use this to see:

Opt('SendKeyDelay', 100)
$string = "hello"
Send($string)
