Many years ago, I had a product called Quickeys for the Macintosh that allowed me to record keyboard and mouse events and create a macro that could be assigned to a keyboard accelerator.

This was a really useful tool, but I haven't seen anything like it ever on Microsoft Windows OS platform.

Does such a product exist?

I'd recommend AutoHotKey

"Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder."

I've used this and related tool AutoITv3 -- both great tools -- but I have not yet recorded a macro based on keystrokes. YMMV.
