Quicker access to remote file


My office manager and I share the same instance of FileMaker, she opening the database remotely from my computer. I am watching what she has to do:

1. Start FileMaker.
2. Issue the Open Remote command.
3. Click the Host name from the Hosts window
4. Double-click the database name from the Files window. 
5. Enter her account name in place of mine.

Those are a lot of steps! Can any of this be automated for her? I know that there is command-line support for the software and I would be fine writing a lengthy batch file if that would do the trick. Open to any and all suggestions. Many thanks...
