Re: How to search inside files

I didn't know you can do in Notepad++ I just tried. I definitely won't be using for the following reasons: - The interface is not good. I want to go to a specific folder - where I just type a path and it goes there. They have a point and click interface. I discovered later you can just paste the pat...

Re: How to search inside files

Windows Explorer might still be best... just because of the interface. The search needs to be done on whatever folder I'm in at that ti...

How to search inside files

Is it possible to search within files using AHK? WIndows Explorer is 'OK'. It can be slow and cumbersome sometimes. All I need to do is search through a few thousand CSV files. Or... can I use findstr DOS command? Or should I use Windows Grep? Would be nice to have some sort of interface - so I can ...

I tab through on a browser page. There is some text I need to select. Some of the text you can't get to using the keyboard. You can use the mouse to select and copy. The other problem is that the text is in a form. Sometimes there could be 4 of them, other times there could be 20 of them. Each one w...

How games detect AHK?

Games like Fortnite and World of Warcraft and others... How do they detect AHK? Is it simply that you have to install the program on your machine and therefore they can look at other processes running and can therefore see if AHK is running? Makes no sense to me. Surely it wouldn't be too difficult ...
