AutoHotkey (AHK) is a free, open-source macro-creation and automation software for Windows that allows users to automate repetitive tasks. It is driven by a scripting language that was initially aimed at providing keyboard shortcuts, otherwise known as hotkeys, that over time evolved into a full-fledged scripting language.
Do you work in the Command prompt often? We do! So much that we wrote a couple of great tools to make it super-easy to access the command prompt
The first tool modifies your Windows Shell context menu. After running cmdhere, simply right-click in an Explorer window and you’ll see a new option “Cmd here”.
Additionally there’s a second script which, when launched will get the path to your active Explorer window and open a command prompt
GeekDude’s Chrome Class is amazing! Having said that, automating Chrome is much more complicated than automating IE. For this reason I asked Isaias to create a Simple example of automating Chrome with AutoHotkey.
Here’s the short video of automating Chrome with AutoHotkey
You can get the Simple script automating Chrome with AutoHotkey below
A subscriber reached out asking for help on how to detect multiple presses of a device (Probably something connected via Bluetooth). While I showed them where I walk through how to detect the long-press of a key, I did think it was an interesting question so Isaias and I worked on a more robust solution that is easily adaptable for multiple key / mouse presses. We also touched on using a Ternary command over just logic.
