Another Free Tool That Will Save You Time

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:

You can download AutoHotkey, completely free, here.

    First time commenter and long time reader bro.. I wanted to say I did take a look at the ZScreen, but I just haven’t had the time to put it to use yet.

    Anyway I just wanted to say I like what your doing and I’m going to try to implement this new software also.

    +1 for PhraseExpress. It is also free and like a better AutoHotkey PLUS a smart user interface. You won’t want to go back after trying PhraseExpress.
