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 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: Pulover's Macro Creator can be used as a macro recorder and includes an "Export to AHK" function.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but if you download the installer and extract, you get all the exes (32/64 unicode and ansi), Window Spy, the help chm, a template and the ahk2exe compiler.

For anyone looking for, there is a note on the downloads page:
"v1.1.18.00 (temporarily reverted from v1.1.19.00, pending a bug fix)"

So it is back to for the moment.

Cool! As a layman, one of the things that has always blocked my approach of AHK was its muddled state of development/support...

Just to add to my above comment, it also mentions the situation on the front page, under the 'Why' heading.
