AutoHotkey is a tool for controlling Windows computers, allowing users to automate a wide range of tasks and customize how their mouse and keyboard behave. Examples on their front page include "form fillers, auto-clicking, macros, etc." It can even be used for software remapping of keyboard layouts. AHK uses its own built-in scripting language that is designed for ease of learning and use. A number of examples of the syntax are provided on the AHK front page, with more available via RosettaCode. In the documentation section, users can locate a tutorial and comprehensive reference for the AutoHotkey language. In addition to the official tutorial, the footer of the site links to a number of community-provided tutorials including video tutorials via YouTube. AutoHotkey is a free software, distributed under the GNU General Public License, with source code available on GitHub.
