Take a look at 'SendKeys.Send' and/or p/invoke on the 'SendInput' function.

Thanks, I have done that as I'm working on a hotkey application.

Looks like I'll have to figure out hotkey registration and calls to the
windows API to achieve my objective which is to paste strings to the
Operating System.

Any suggestions?
