Customize your keyboard, joystick, and mouse with an open source scripting language (AutoHotkey) that is backward compatible with AutoIt v2. AutoHotkey it includes a quick-start tutorial, an automatic script writer (macro recorder) that records your keystrokes and mouse clicks, and a comprehensive help file. 

Automate almost anything: Send keystrokes & mouse clicks; launch programs / documents; work with the clipboard, registry, & soundcard settings. In addition to its automation features described below, AutoHotkey excels at hotkeys, able to make virtually *any* mouse/joystick button, keyboard key, or combination into a hotkey.
AutoHotkey it can also individually disable or override Windows’ own shortcut keys, such as Win+E and Win+R. It may also help alleviate RSI; for example, it can create substitutes for Alt-Tab using keys, mouse wheel, or buttons.

With AutoHotkey, you can:
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. See GUI for details.
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.

Change the volume, mute, and other settings of any soundcard.
Make any window transparent, always-on-top, or alter its shape.
Use a joystick or keyboard as a mouse.
Monitor your system. For example, close unwanted windows the moment they appear.
Retrieve and change the clipboard’s contents, including file names copied from an Explorer window.
Disable or override Windows’ own shortcut keys such as Win+E and Win+R.
Alleviate RSI with substitutes for Alt-Tab (using keys, mouse wheel, or buttons).
Customize the tray icon menu with your own icon, tooltip, menu items, and submenus.
Display dialog boxes, tooltips, balloon tips, and popup menus to interact with the user.
Perform scripted actions in response to system shutdown or logoff.
Detect how long the user has been idle. For example, run CPU intensive tasks only when the user is away.
Automate game actions by detecting images and pixel colors (this is intended for legitimate uses such as the alleviation of RSI).
Read, write, and parse text files more easily than in other languages.
Perform operation(s) upon a set of files that match a wildcard pattern.
Work with the registry and INI files.

Whats New :
Fixed COM exception messages to not end in `r.
Fixed {U+x} to support supplementary characters (x > 0xFFFF).
Fixed class properties which lack get{} to return an empty value instead of the internal Property object when the class has a base which does not define a value for the property. Properties defined in baseless classes already behaved correctly.
Fixed the background color of controls on a Tab3 control when the system has visual styles disabled (i.e. Windows Classic).
Fixed handling of thread-exit in functions which are called directly by an event (such as OnExit functions). This bug had no known effect except in the v2-alpha branch.
Fixed the debugger to detect disconnection immediately (i.e. when a client terminates without calling stop/detach).
Fixed the debugger to treat property_get -m 0 as “unlimited”, as per the DBGp spec.
Fixed the debugger to expect base64 for property_set -t integer/float, as per the DBGp spec.
