AHK binding left joy AND dpad to wasd (and buttons to keys)

My friend asked me about using controllers with Among Us. I was surprised to not be able to find an existing mapping script, so I wound up writing one. Maps left joy and dpad to wasd - also added some button to key binding for the keyboard shortcuts in Among Us. (two versions as she uses xbox contro...

Re: Copy, Switch Tabs, paste, switch tabs, repeat

Here's a straight translation of your steps, I would suggest debugging by setting the loops to 1 and putting in a "Return" to terminate early and slowly move it down as you see that each step is working properly Month := 12 Day := 17 Year := 2020 ^0:: Loop, 2 { Send, ^c ; Copy (from Excel) Sleep, 50...

Re: IfWinExist can't find a window on a different desktop on Windows 10

I came here to post this bug. For me, adding DetectHiddenWindows, On does not fix the problem for: ;; Firefox #!f:: if WinExist("ahk_exe firefox.exe") WinActivate else Run "D:\PortableApps(NS)\apps\firefox\current\firefox.exe" Return When DetectHiddenWindows, On is added at the start of the script,...

Script Share: don't accidently flip/rotate monitors

(Context/Background) During the stay at home, I've been using Windows Remote desktop in full screen a lot more. I also use Windows 10's virtual desktop to run a few apps locally (like my music), I would often CTRL + ALT + Home (^!Home) to escape the key capture then CTRL + Win + Right (^#Right) to s...

Re: Switching layout while certain keys are pressed

Another option is to manually code the whole thing - https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/7462-qwerty-remapped-as-dvorak/ Maybe make keyboard shortcuts to start and stop that script??

Re: Distinction Between an Open Folder and the Desktop/Taskbar

If I understand correctly, you want to check if the active "window" (or process) is a window of Explorer (open to some folder), or just the desktop - both of which are from the Explorer.EXE process. I've found the the ahk class (as in WinGetClass ) to be effective. If desktop is active: this equals ...

you can use ControlSend to specify the target process/window of a key press. Your requested script my look something like this (untested) Note: I'm running the 64 bit version of OBS, so for me, the process name is obs64.exe, but you can verify this using the Window Spy ( https://amourspirit.github.i...

Otherwise, if you want to put hotkeys into your script to launch an editor and re-load the code, it might look something like this (untested) ^RButton:: ; run Notepad passing this script to edit Run, notepad %A_ScriptFullPath% Return ^+RButton:: ; Tell Windows to run this script (causes a reload) Ru...

Re: need help finding editing program

I think what you're asking for is a script manager - I've seen a couple come across the forums, try doing a search.

One example:

Check out Suspend command Also for the number of times, you might find Loop helpful. Something like this (untested): ; toggle active or not on Win + p #p:: Suspend, Toggle if (A_IsSuspended) TrayTip, {Tool Name}, not active, 10, 1 else TrayTip, {Tool Name}, Activated, 10, 1 return ; . = Win + CTRL +...

Re: Limit (or filter) Alt+Tab windows switcher to show specific windows only

With AHK, it's pretty easy to REPLACE the alt-tab behavior with your own, this example looks at the current windows exe, and activates the next window that has the same exe (toggle through Chrome windows for example): (I normally run it use using alt + backtick ( !SC029:: ), but this should give you...

(just a couple of thoughts/immediate reaction) this part could/should be at the top of the script rather than in the loop as it only needs to run once (maybe, maybe improve loop speed?? not likely, but cleaner code anyways) DetectHiddenWindows, On SetTitleMatchMode RegEx SetTitleMatchMode, slow Is t...

@hasantr
Can you explain a little?
Yes, but it would help if you post (or message) specific questions.
Have you checked out the site? Was it clear how to use it? (If not, I'ld love to get on a video call with you and have you walk me through where you're getting stuck).

Re: Disable the hotkey when no window is active Topic is solved

Unfotunately, from AHK's perspective there's never a case of "no active window" - however you can detect if the desktop is the "active window" by checking for "ahk_exe Explorer.exe ahk_class WorkerW" So, your script would change to be something like (untested): ^Backspace:: IfNotWinActive, ahk_exe E...
