User Rating: 3.0 (14 votes)

AutoHotkey is a free, open-source utility for Windows. AutoHotkey is an open-source scripting language that enables you to configure keyboard, joystick and mouse controls in a user-friendly environment. At initialization, the program creates an icon in the system tray area, where you can access its options, edit, reload and pause scripts, as well as suspend hotkeys. In the primary panel you can view the most recently executed lines, variables and their contents, hotkeys and their methods, along with key history and script information.

AutoHotkey barely uses CPU and memory, so it doesn't slow down system performance or disrupt user activity. It performs smoothly and doesn't cause the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. With it, you can:

* Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
* Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
* Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
* Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
* Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
* Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
* Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
* Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.
