Script Highlight

We started off highlighting a script which Jean Lalonde (author of Quick Access Popup) had created to test being able to identify a unique computer.  You can get the code here: The code is to ensure a given license is being used on only one device.

AutoHotkey webinar

In October’s AutoHotkey webinar an attendee (Maciej Słojewski) shared a couple of scripts he, and his company, have been working on.

The first hour focused on his advanced HotStrings tool which is pretty awesome!  You can access it on both Github and the AutoHotkey forum.

In the 2nd hour Maciej shared his work on external keyboards.   This was really interesting as he had a second keyboard which had every letter covered and assigned to an AutoHotkey script as well as showing how he’d connected a small touch-screen and was clicking “virtual” buttons on it which were launching scripts!  This second script is still in development however you can see it here on the AutoHotkey forum

Thanks again for sharing your work Maciej!
