When it comes to hotkeys, many of us know the Windows defaults. Don’t you wish there was an easy way to extend on that idea though? What if you could develop your own set of hotkeys that would help you get your work done faster? AutoHotkey is the freeware download that you need to make this happen. The best thing about it is that it does not take a college degree to figure it out.

Here is what the developers of the program have to say about it:

AutoHotkey is a script driven automation utility that enables you to automate almost any task on your PC by running applications or documents and/or sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. The program supports many advanced functionalities that allow you to create complex with flow control, math commands, variables and expressions, file functions, message boxes and much more.

One part of the program that I really liked was the Script Recorder. It allows you do simple task automatically by recording your mouse and keyword activities.

There is a learning curve to this program, but once you get it down you won’t know how you existed without it. If you need a hotkey application that is simple enough for novice users and powerful enough for advanced users, AutoHotkey is your choice. There is no better free solution on Windows when it comes to this type of work.
