I just installed windows 8 and it broke all a lot my scripts from windows 7.
I have scripts such as:
#e:: if WinExist("ahk_class Explorer++.exe") WinActivate, ahk_class Explorer++.exe else Run, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Explorer++\Explorer++.exe" return
This one was supposed to replace window's "open explorer" command (windows key + e) with an Explorer++. In windows 7, this script worked just fine but in windows 8, it would function really weirdly. Whenever I hit Win+E, it would open a normal explorer window. I have to double tap Win+E in order for the script to execute and open Explorer++. When I map it to a key that doesn't have a native windows function, it will execute just fine. I have around 15ish hotkeys that's mapped with the Win key as the modifier and been using them daily for for 6 months now so remapping them all would really suck.
I've tried searching google and the forums for an answer but after a day I still can't figure it out.
I've tried running as administrator and disabling UAC to no avail. Anyone got an idea of what I should do?
