Auto Hot Key

Recommended Posts



I've set up auto hotkeys for my wife when answering emails. Here is a snippet of the file.

To use, she types

xapr (space)


xab (space)

which activates the script and types the text.


This is saved under "MyAutoHotkeys.ahk" and when compiled creates "MyAutoHotkeys.exe". There is a shortcut to that exe in the Startup folder, so that it is running.

; AutoHotkey Version: 1.x
; Language:       English
; Platform:       Win9x/NT
; Author:         A.N.Other <myemail@nowhere.com>
; Script Function:
;    Template script (you can customize this template by editing "ShellNew\Template.ahk" in your Windows folder)

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
