Jack’s New Beginner’s Guide to AutoHotkey

Completely Rewritten, Jack’s New Beginner’s Guide to AutoHotkey Includes Peeks at AutoHotkey Version 2.0

In July of 2012, I first starting digging into AutoHotkey. Originally, I put AutoHotkey in the class of “just another Windows scripting language.” But as I delved deeper and deeper, I soon realized that it had assumed the mantle of probably “the best utility software to ever DeprecatedRobothit Windows.” Not only does AutoHotkey immediately automate many simple Windows tasks, but it includes the powerful commands and functions you might find in any programming language—and much more. Six years later, nothing has changed my mind. In fact, as I learn more about AutoHotkey through my blogging and books, I get even more convinced that AutoHotkey offers “absolutely the best free Windows utility software ever!” Continue reading

Jack’s AutoHotkey E-Book Library

 

If You Seek a Wealth of Information about AutoHotkey and How It Works, You Can’t Go Wrong with Jack’s AutoHotkey E-Book Library. See the Benefits! Plus, Coming Soon!—More on the Future AutoHotkey Version 2.0 Release

“They threw me out of the library for processing too loud.”

I currently maintain a number of irons in the fire—all AutoHotkey. With three books in the works (two new and one major rewrite), plus regular blogging about AutoHotkey on this site, I find no shortage of things to do. Right now, you’ll find nine AutoHotkey books available at the ComputorEdge E-Books site on topics ranging from an introductory level Beginner’s Guide to a little more complex AutoHotkey Windows scripting, such as, AutoHotkey Applications and Using Regular Expressions in AutoHotkey. By years end, that number should reach eleven books—hopefully. While continuing with the new books, I’ve shifted part of my focus to updating the older books by adding examples of the new AutoHotkey Version 2.0. I plan to increase the versatility of the library regardless of whether readers ultimately decide to upgrade to V2.0 or stick with the current reliable V1.1. If you own one of the AutoHotkey Library Bundles, then you can get these new rewrites with V2.0 examples absolutely free.  Continue reading

New E-Book Bundles for Making Your Journey into AutoHotkey Scripting Easier

JacksLibraryBookDeal250Every programmer suffers moments where he or she achieves a breakthrough and the code actually works. Their first impulse—tell someone…anyone. “Look what I just did!” Alas, they find no one nearby to praise the accomplishment. At least, no one who either understands or cares about their success. Maybe that’s why I write about my AutoHotkey journeys. I need to tell someone when (ironically?) some code I wrote does what it’s supposed to do. Continue reading

Beginning Tips for Writing AutoHotkey Scripts

Exploring the Existential Mysteries of AutoHotkey Code and How It’s Often Misunderstood

AutoHotkeyInsightsI’ve just published my latest book, Beginning Tips for Writing AutoHotkey Script, which endeavors to clear up some of the mystery surrounding the way AutoHotkey works. You’ll find grasping how AutoHotkey processes AHK scripts a tremendous help. Quite a bit of the confusion encountered by novice AutoHotkey scriptwriters occurs through misunderstandings about the manner in which everything (life, the universe, and AutoHotkey scripts) fits together. I wrote the book with that muddiness in mind. Continue reading

Working on a New AutoHotkey Book

Compiling Material for My Biggest Book Yet!

I’ve started bringing together the parts for my next AutoHotkey book. I have over thirty AutoHotkey tips in the form of previous (no longer published) articles I wrote for the old ComputorEdge Magazine and another thirty, or so, I thought there would be pie!I’ve written since that time on various topics without a specific theme. As I organize the chapters, I see various motifs running through them. I plan to include numerous recent insights as I rewrite and edit each piece.

None of the above repeats work previously published as chapters in my other books. However,  I’m also considering including, with proper emphasis, my most important AutoHotkey epiphanies and “best practices” which do appear in the other books. This new, heavier e-book should be a good reference for almost anyone. Continue reading
