Microsoft MVP Greg Shields shows you how to use VB Scripting for automation.

Windows admins, you know you've done it -- clicked the same 5 buttons over and over again to do something that should be automated. Using the Windows interface to do your admin tasks gets repetitive -- and boring.

Now you can automate Windows admin tasks with VBScript, the non-programmer's scripting language.

This course gives you the skills you need to apply VBScript on the job, transforming repetitive and labor-intensive tasks into simple scripts you write once and run quickly when you need them.
