WELCOME TO HotKeyIt.
- Quick website access (Google I'm feeling lucky)
- Quick environment variable access
- Quick folders and files access
- Create a keyword variable containing website, folder, file or macro
- Calculate, Hide/Unhide window, QWERTY Keyboard, Record macro...
Here is a QUICK START TUTORIAL to help you to start with that program.
I tried to make it as fast as possible, so you can start whatever you want immediately, loosing no time at all.
On first start it will ask you for a password(leave empty for none) and will create a config.ini and another file that is used for de/encryption(only works if password entered).
On start it will ask you for autostart(YES/NO) if you press yes it will ask to show demo.
START WITH - CAPSLOCK & TAB (PRESS ALT & M FOR MORE OPTIONS)
FOR HELP - CAPSLOCK & F9
MACROMANAGEMENT - CAPSLOCK & F5
FILE/FOLDER STARTER - CAPSLOCK & SHIFT

Write your script in the same way as in AHK, so it supports real AHK code now.
Now with HiEdit (included only in exe, run exe and it will be extracted) if you want to have for ahk file.
Loop now works with (files & folders) (read files content) (parse a string) (registry) as well.

If it still does not all fit in one post, try uploading to one of the free script servers that the community maintains.

very fast file and folder access (CAPSLOCK & SHIFT, type drive letter, than the folder, F12 will switch between searching files or folders F11 will enable subfolder search)
It is quite interesting indeed, good job.
Unless I am mistaken (I only quickly cheched and I am quite tired, so I might) you forgot to mention here, on the ahk.net page and in the program own help popup (and affter just checking not even in the alt+q help) that the down cursor key allows to cycle between the potential good matches (ie once in c:\program files\ , type m then with the arrow you can cycle between m* folders, type mi* and you cycle between microsoft whatever, mirc etc...).
On the same point, I had to try using a wild card to see if they could be accepted and thus *ic cycles between all folder with ic in their name.
That's were that function really shines and I believe it should be more obvious for the potential user which gives a quick try.

I tried your script and I found it very useful to remember hotkeys. It is quite interesting for heavy computer users that have to do repetitive small computer tasks. But, I found a few bugs when I tried it. Are you planning on improving it ?
If you decide to work on these bugs, your script could bring AutoHotkey to a new type of users.

Very pleased to hear that.
I am improving it all the time, as long as I find time.
As I am not a programmer, I program all trough trying, fixing, improving; so it might be that there are a lot of errors, when I find an error I always try to fix it immediately.
If anyone finds an error you can post it here or send me a message and I will try to fix.
As I am planing to improve it quite a lot. It would be best to get all interested AHK programmers together and to improve the program as good as we can. It would be optimal to build a real time online workshop so everybody can improve and program the program at the same time, but I have not made a lot thoughts about that yet. It could provide functions and programs from anybody to anybody, that are very easy to import into HotKeyIt and can be used and hotkeyed straight away.
Thanks again for testing, will wait for your error reports.
P.S.: AFTER I MADE THIS PROGRAM I AM WORKING AT LEAST 100% FASTER (some tasks, now done as a sequence of macros, are in total 500% faster and more, AHK is just unbelievable).
MY INTENTION IS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF A COMPUTER AND IT LOOKS LIKE A PROGRAM LIKE THIS CAN MASTER IT VERY WELL.
WHEN I CAN GET IT MORE USER FRIENDLY, IT WOULD BE A BREAKTHROUGH FOR ANY USER AND COMPANY, A HOT KEY IS REALLY VERY POWERFUL AND WE ALL KNOW HOW FEW USERS USE HOTKEYS (I think an average user uses hotkeys less than 0.01% of the his working time with computer).
STOP USING MOUSE WHEN WORKING ON COMPUTER
- MOUSE IS JUST TO SLOW
- MOUSE IS ALSO TO COMFORTABLE - EVEN ADDICTIVE
- THAT IS WHY IT STOPS FROM USING A HOTKEY AND MAKES A USER SLOW
SO GET YOUR COMPUTER TO DO YOUR WORK.

seems like a very nice program
I only need a couple of your functions and was looking for an easy way to disable to others ones, looked over the code but there was just so much that i had no idea where to start. Also, your program uses ebay.de is this changeable aswell?
EDIT: Seems like it is in using the german websites in all the search functions...

It is also true that it is to much code and little to complex.(I learned AutoHotkey building this program)
To change this you need to go to label GO: and look for
else if vgoogle = - ;this is for ebay
else if vgoogle = . ;this is for google I'm feeling lucky.
P.S. here the program also checks whether to start the browser and run for example google or for an IP address, or to open a path like c:\... or \\server\folder
Hope it helps.
