How do you do simple keystroke macros in Windows?

That used to be a feature in Word and Excel, and I used it all the
time. Then Microsoft switched to VBA, which doesn't simply record
keystrokes but interprets them, often resulting in macros that don't
work outside of the specific context in which they were recorded.
