Anyone know of this old AHK script for Windows....?

I'm looking for a script that I can't find for the life of me. Probably 7-10 years back, I wanted to make a script to show all currently open Windows Explorer windows, and then be able to save that list, giving the option of restoring whatever list of explorer/folder windows open after rebooting. So...

Re: Problem witih "framerate" when dragging windows with AHK

Hi Try replace: SetWinDelay,2 by SetWinDelay,0 or SetWinDelay,-1 (not tested) A_AhkUser This worked perfectly! Setting this to "0" did the trick, thanks for that. The only issue now is the resizing function: when resizing, the area of the newly-expanded area of window is blank/white until you let g...

Can Windows Z-order be manipulated (without the GUI)?

Years back, I wanted to make a script that could manipulate the Z-ordering of windows in Windows. I wanted to make script function/ability to selectively "push down" or "pull up" any window up or down through the Windows Z-order layers. It would be like if we had the ability to rearrange program win...

Problem witih "framerate" when dragging windows with AHK

I use an AHK script "KDE Window Drag" which enables moving/resizing windows (in Windows) by mouse click-and-dragging anywhere inside a window instead of having to click-and-hold the window's title bar (for moving) or the razor-thin window borders (for resizing). The script works, however, the visual...

Re: SciTE4AutoHotkey v3.0.06.01 [Updated October 12 2014]

Is there a "Restore previously opened files" option? I rely on this feature a lot in other software, from web browsers to code editors to Acrobat PDFs, etc. It'd be great if SciTE4AHK could do those, reopening whatever scripts were open at time of closing. I keep a number of scripts open in the edit...

Is it possible to interact with Windows Alt-Tab functionality?

I'd like to add some much-needed functionality into Alt-Tabbing in Windows. I'm wondering if it's possible to programmatically interface with the Alt-Tab functionality + popup menu without mere scripted manual keyboard input . Is there an API or some other direct way to be able to pull Alt-Tab puppe...

Can GroupAdd only be used at the beginning of a script?

I have a script I've been customizing (below), and am trying to GroupAdd multiple web browsers into a group so that a few text auto-expands only apply to those browsers. I'm finding, however, that GroupAdd only seems to work at the top of the script. As soon as the script reaches one of the keyboard...

Re: How can a script simply mouseclick a window edge?

I use this in WindowPad (the comments are from at least 3 years ago): ; Explorer uses WM_EXITSIZEMOVE to detect when a user finishes moving a window ; in order to save the position for next time. May also be used by other apps. PostMessage, 0x232 In this case, the Last Found Window had been set to ...

How can a script simply mouseclick a window edge?

I've been using a KDE window resize script for a while. An issue with it, however, is that Windows 7 doesn't remember the new size of the window. Researching this, I discovered that this script is bypassing the way Windows tracks new size changes -- clicking and dragging the edge of a window. I find...

Possible to trigger a GUI's function without using the GUI?

Is it possible to trigger a GUI's function without actually interacting with the GUI? Like "puppet-stringing" the behind-the-GUI function, essentially bypassing the GUI entirely. For example, in Internet Explorer, pressing F12 brings up the Developer Tools pane. Inside this pane, there's a button ca...

Possible to limit to when user is typing in URL address bar?

Would it be possible to limit a script from acting except only when the user is typing in the URL address bar of Internet Explorer? I have some things that I want to be done, but only when the user is typing in the address bar.

If possible, how would I go about it?

It'd be great if we could set an option ...

What about changing a device's number of channels/speakers? The links posted so far have been helpful, but I still have yet to find anything pointing to how to accomplish this. Any ideas?

Re: Can AHK change audio device settings...?

The problem, so far as I'm dealing with, is that "new" devices are created when certain monitor types are turned off/on (i.e., HDMI + DisplayPort). So I'm unable to do much with the registry, short of some type of "relative" adjustments rather than absolute -- e.g., "Lock the first subkey from ever ...
