Automate Keyboard and Mouse Strokes with AutoHotKey

I have always wanted to automate the process of my daily work that I do that is what I type at the keyboard and click on the mouse for some particular work. If this is the same situation with you then here is a solution.

The tool is called AutoHotkey which is a free, open-source utility for Windows. Using this tool you can do the following things:

•    Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.

•    Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.

•    Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing “btw” can automatically produce “by the way”.

•    Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars.

•    Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.

•    Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.

•    Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.

•    Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don’t have AutoHotkey installed.

It may seem hard to get started which should not be in reality, for more info visit the homepage.
