AutoHotkey is a powerful automation and scripting tool with included macro recorder and export to a self-contained executable. Possible uses include assigning the hotkey "Ctrl-Alt-F" to launch Firefox, making abbreviations expand to their full definition as you type them, or saving time by setting the computer to auto-click a confirmation screen. The scripting language used is mostly backward compatible with AutoIt2 scripts.

The program can create entire applications and has been used to create many hosted here on PortableFreeware including 7plus, WallPaper Randomizer, Gridy, and many more.

Note: The former AutoHotkey site is still available at

@DarkShadow: Of course I have. But 16 'potentials' out of 55 tests (29%) seems way too risky to me, especially when there are alternatives. Each to his own...

i'm using this tool for a very long time now.
my kaspersky av, which is one of the best, has never detected a threat.
virustotal is just a shitty false-positve detection service, that makes brainless fools like TTwrs fall for it.

The nature of this kind of applications always produces false positive.
It's 4 out of 55 ( ) = 7,27%

Oops. Went to the autoit portable link, where Avast blocked the download of autoit creator.exe, claimed it was infected with Win32-Evo-gen ...

Ganamyde on 2013-12-24 08:40

Twisted language, go for AutoHotkey instead.

guinness on 2013-12-24 10:13

@IanFromBarrie, strange as Avast is being over protective. AutoIt Creator is designed by me and is not affiliated with AutoIt.

@Ganamyde, in the future please give a reason as to why that is, otherwise your comment has no merit.
