Autohotkey Learning – Chapter1

When I played the video games, I always set up a lot of hot keys to ensure that my hand moving could be as fast as possible. 

Today, recommended by my coach, I found a new way to set up the hot keys to our computer. I will record my learning process here.

What is Autohotkey? Automation. Hotkeys. Scripting.

It is a open source script language which could help you to set up the hot keys to accelerate your working and improve the productivity.

I searched from the website and found a lot of books to learn. I will follow up the steps to create my auothotkey.

First, let’s see the real example to realize the first success.

1. Find your link where the AHK is saved

     C:\01_Flat\Program Files (x86)\AutoHotkey

2. Create one notepad and write down the script


     msgbox, Learning Autohotkey `n Make our life easy


3. Use the quick key: Win+Space, the result is following.

    Pop out the message box

4. More description for signal

     #                = Windows

     msgbox       = Box

     ‘n                = Another line

     return          = more command line to use

5. A special application


msgbox, Learning Autohotkey `n Make our life easy.




msgbox, welcome to the blog `n Please write the blog today.



Run notepad




Run calc.exe



The most happy thing is to run the computer calculater by WIN+C and open my blog by ctrl+alt+b.

What are eaiser than before.

To be continue.
