AutoHotkey is an open-source utility and can automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write macros by hand or use the macro recorder. You can also create hotkeys for keyboard, mouse, joystick, and handheld remote controls. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey. Similarly, you can define abbreviations that expand as you type them. For example, typing btw can automatically produce by the way. Finally, you can create custom data entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. Other features include remap keys, change soundcard settings (like volume or mute), use a joystick or keyboard as a mouse; make any window transparent, always-on-top, or alter its shape; manipulate the clipboard, customize the tray menu's icon and menu items, run existing AutoIt v2 scripts, and convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on any PC.
What is new in this release:
- Fixed InputBox, MsgBox, FileSelectFile and FileSelectFolder sending an unwanted Alt-up if Alt is down. This was due to an error with the Ctrl/Shift workaround added in v1.1.22.01.
- Improved the Ctrl/Shift workaround to avoid unnecessarily "masking" the Win key if Ctrl, Shift or Alt is also down.
