Description: AutoHotkey has four primary features: 1) automating repetitive tasks by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks (you can write such macros by hand or use the macro recorder); 2) creating hotkeys for keyboard, mouse, joystick, and handheld remote controls (virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey); 3) expanding abbreviations as you type them (for example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way"); and 4) creating custom data entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. AutoHotkey's secondary features include changing soundcard settings (like volume or mute); using a joystick or keyboard as a mouse; remapping keys; launching programs/documents; making any window transparent, always-on-top, or altering its shape; manipulating the clipboard; customizing the tray menu's icon and menu items; displaying dialog boxes to interact with the user; running existing AutoIt v2 scripts; and converting any script into an EXE file that can be run on any computer. NOTES: abbreviation expansion and mouse button hotkeys require NT/2000/XP. Home page: download page v 1.0.45 (2006-11-04) [ AutoHotkey104500_Install.exe (1784 KB)] [ (1794 KB)]
