10 days ago I let you guys know about a great free program called ZScreen.
In my continued effort to try to work more efficiently and save time, I found another awesome tool for the job a few weeks back. It’s called AutoHotkey and is amazingly powerful for such a simple and small program (Only 2 MB!).
Basically, it’s a free, open-source utility for Windows that allows you to program or script your own hotkeys, macros, actions, and tools. You can seriously do almost anything you can think of with this small program, and can even simply make your own standalone executables (.exe’s).
While I use it mainly for its hotkey and macro features, AutoHotkey is just so cool that it’s going to be one of those tools that I will be using for years now.
Below is an 15-minute screencast of me showing how AutoHotkey works and why it’s useful:
