This is an introduction to a series of tutorials on AutoHotkey, a free scripting language for windows that supports hotkey creation for keyboard, mouse, and joystick. It can easily expand abbreviations as you type them (AutoText), but is not limited to that.

It is a great starting point for new programmers because it is very powerful and flexible allowing you to create very complex programs and GUIs and even accessing WinAPIs which gives it an unbelievable power over windows.

In this video I show some of the basic features of the program as well as how to set up a working environment with Notepad++ and a syntax highlighter for AHK.

This channel is dedicated to AutoHotkey tutorials, from the bare basics to the most advanced features of this powerful scripting language.

The main goal of this series is to help you understand AHK by watching my explanations on how the commands work and by watching how I create the scripts.

This is a hands on experience, which means that you should try the examples yourself and I will provide the source code of all my scripts created during the videos so you can explore them and learn from real life examples.
