What is macro used for and the reasons behind using it?

I just got an Actual IDE (RJ TextED) this one mainly because its free and i just code as a hobby and i also ditched my previous one (Notepad++) but i noticed that both had macro in it and i never bothered to figure out what it did or its purpose so i tried it and i dont know how it can be used for real world applications so my question is why does it exist in the software? and why is it used?

what programming language are you working with? in C a macro is like a constant that defines any number of instructions or values. for example you can define a block of code that you use repeatedly as a macro and use that macro instead of writing the same code every time.
