I used to use the SendKeys function in WinBatch all of the time. Alas,
WinBatch has become too pricey for me to recommend it to avg. B2B/B2C
clients.

Certain earlier versions of Windows shipped with ScriptIt, which was
essentially a pared-down WinBatch knockoff. I couldn't find it on the 'net.

But today there is the free AutoIt and AutoHotkey. I didn't investigate the
former, but have found the latter to be quite similar to WinBatch.

Stay tuned for my blog post on this topic.
