I recently started working on my next book—which looks like my biggest one yet. It includes many AutoHotkey tips no longer readily available on the Web (ever since I took down the ComputorEdge Magazine Web server a couple of years ago).

As I was digging through the material, I realized that I had reviewed numerous AutoHotkey apps which compete in quality with any commercially developed software packages. I’ve decided that rather than updating those reviews and posting them here, I would repurpose the ComputorEdge Software Showcase site for the best of the best AutoHotkey apps—at least in my opinion. Rather than demonstrating the free scripts as learning tools, I emphasize their usefulness and how they work. (If you want to dig into the code, that’s up to you.) These apps represent tools which anyone can use—even if they don’t use AutoHotkey.

My first peek at useful AutoHotkey apps highlights TypingAid which adds autocompletion pop-up lists to any editing window.
