AutoHotkey

AutoHotkey is a tool that we’ve written about here in the past. Technically, it’s not a shortcut but actually a utility for generating your own macros.  It’s free and you use it to create your own scripts for all kinds of tasks. One example would be a sentence or phrase that you have to type frequently. Using AutoHotkey, you’ll create a hotkey or keyboard shortcut that then produces that verbiage automatically.

It’s free, flexible, and extremely easy to use. With it, you create your own scripts for all kinds of tasks. For example, think of a sentence or phrase that you have to type frequently. Using AutoHotkey, you’ll create a hotkey or keyboard shortcut that then produces that verbiage automatically.

It’s a great time-saver — one that my VA uses quite a lot.

    I love AutoHotkey and also use a lot of the Windows shortcuts. One of my favorites is Windows + D to go to my Desktop. It saves a LOT of minimizing – and thus a lot of time!

    • Thanks for stopping by and sharing this. I’ve heard a lot of feedback, over the years, about AutoHotkey. Glad you like it.

      And thanks, too, for sharing your shortcut. It certainly does sound like a time-saver, especially when you’ve got a lot of different documents and windows open.
