The interface is the simplest thing that can be, because actually there is none. Only one icon is added in your taskbar and from there you can open a window, which is like a simple text program, where you add, edit or save scripts. Also from there you can view which lines were most recently executed, variables and their content, hotheys and their methods and also key history and script info. From the toolbar you can activate Windows spy, reload or edit the current script or pause it.

Basic Operations

Besides creating hotkeys, the other curious option is that you can create abbreviations and make them automatically produce a meaning. The developers give the example of “btw” which can automatically produce “by the way”. AutoHotkeys can also expand already existing scripts and add new capabilities to them and it can also create custom data entries.


The capabilities of AutoHotkeys to create new helpful macros and scripts for hotkeys, abbreviations, etc., are limited only by your skill to use these tools. That's why it's recommended only for advanced users, but once you have the skills to use the program you'll see that it can save you a lot of time with every task.


  • Limitless hotkeys creation
  • Use of abbreviations
  • Edits and creates scripts


  • Only for advanced users
