By default the macro will only run on the specific window(s) it was recorded on. However you can check ‘Enable to run with other similar files or window titles' option in the edit macro dialog. This will instruct macro to run even if window title doesn't match exactly.

If you do not wish macro to be associate with any window or application, you can uncheck 'Enable RecWin Technology for this macro', this way macro will just run without looking for the window or application where it is recorded on.
