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.

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
