Hello,

 

I want to send a key to a Chrome Tab which is no big deal. I do it like this:

ControlSend, Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND1 , {Space Up}, %Title%

But the problem is that it doesnt work if the tab is not active e.g im browsing in another tab.

 

So my question, is there a solution to send keys to inactive Chrome tabs.

 

Regards

I have unsuccessfully tried to do the same with Firefox. The only way I found is to temporarily switch to tab and then send the info but that's intrusive. Good luck.

I didn't think this was possible, but I'm responding just to be included in updates :-p 

That would be cool
