Shared Macros

This page contains sample macros created by other Macro Express users. One way to learn how to write better macros is to examine macros written by others. We encourage you to download these macros, and study and modify them as needed.

Share your macros! By sharing your macro you will help others, gain fame, and, if we use your macro, you will receive a Macro Express T-Shirt. See our Shared Macro Guidelines for more information.
