Is there a way to change the position of the recorder so I don’t have to drag it out manually?
Yes. I programmed the bot to move the task recorder to a new location. However, it’s not a complete solution. Because it’s hard to predict what part of the screen you will never use. For example, when you open new windows (Explorer or Browser) they might pop up in a spot where task recorder is partially covering it. An option to hide it temporarily would be the best. Vote and it might be implemented in the future.
