What is AutoHotkey?

AutoHotkey (AHK) is a free, open-source macro-creation and automation software for Windows that allows users to automate repetitive tasks. It is driven by a scripting language that was initially aimed at providing keyboard shortcuts, otherwise known as hotkeys, that over time evolved into a full-fledged scripting language. And if you're really interested, here's a great video about it [here]. (de - 帮助)

Getting started might be easier than you think

Check out the quick-start tutorial for a brief overview of what you can do with AutoHotkey.


You can use AutoHotkey to:

  • Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks.
    You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or a macro recorder.
  • Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
  • Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
    Essentially 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".
  • Retrieve and change the clipboard's contents.
  • Convert any AHK script into an executable file that can be run on computers where AutoHotkey is not installed.
  • Don't know where to start or how to fix your script?
