I commissioned Maestrith (Author of AHK Studio) to develop AutomateMyTask  which simplifies writing AutoHotkey syntax around finding and clicking images / text on a Windows computer.  In some ways it is similar to the FindText() function although it takes the Automation part further!


Currently the script is still under development but I think it is ready to get user input.  I’ve created the below tutorials to help learn how to use it however, I’m sure the functionality is going to change due to some user design teaks and functionality changes.  Just a reminder, if you Automate my Task useful, I’m happy to accept some $



Since I’m paying to have this script developed, I would appreciate it if you’d share the link to this page instead of sharing the program itself.   This will also ensure people can get the latest version of the script.
