Dismissing system tray notifications

Can an AHK script dismiss a system tray notification, instantly, without it fading? There's a TrayTip function where if all params are omitted "any TrayTip window currently displayed will be removed." But that's not working as I would expect it to. I'd like to be able to swat notifications dead in o...

Re: Pinning a shortcut to script to the Windows 8.1 Start sc

Thanks for the clarification. That did it. Finding the various locations of the Start up and and Start Menu and keeping them straight has always been a pain in Windows, but Windows 8.1 seems to have taken it to a new level. I'd been using W7 until a couple of months ago. The Start screen is actually...

Re: Pinning a shortcut to script to the Windows 8.1 Start sc

Thanks for the reply. There must be something I'm not getting. The only two Start Menu locations I can find are at C:\Users\username\Start Menu , which I'm completely locked out of (even though I'm the names user and I'm logged in as an admin.) and at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu, whe...

Pinning a shortcut to script to the Windows 8.1 Start screen

I would like to pin a shortcut to an AHK script to the Start screen in Windows 8.1 (the screen that first comes up with the Win key, not the Apps sub-screen.) I found one thread about this on the old forum at http://www.autohotkey.com/board/topic/114341-pin-ahk-to-start-screen/ but the solution -- t...

Best practices with a series of IF statements

I have a script that has been running well but has started giving me problems. The script is fairly simple, but it is lengthy, and a problem has developed somewhere inside it. I think it is probably a best practices issue, possibly combined with formatting issues, but I'd appreciate some insight. Th...

Defining a custom modifier key

Is it possible to define a custom modifier key, so that in addition to having Ctrl, Alt, Shift, and Win, you could also, for example, define the INS key as a modifier that did nothing by itself. but could be held down to modify the actions of another key?

Re: How to use modifier(s) + semicolon (;) to trigger a hotk

lexikos wrote: You can even write +`; if you want, but it's not necessary because ; comments require a leading space or tab if they aren't at the beginning of the line.

You can even write :::MsgBox.

These even work in ancient versions of AutoHotkey.
That's very useful to know.

Re: AutoHotkey Startup (Consolidate AHK Scripts' Tray Icons)

Thanks for the reply, FG. The problem was that... ; Send {LWin Down}b{LWin Up}{Enter}{Escape} ...had gotten uncommented. Not sure how, but once I commented that out, it was good. I was also using the next-to-most-recent version from page one, but that didn't seem to be the issue. I've updated in any...

Re: AutoHotkey Startup (Consolidate AHK Scripts' Tray Icons)

Is it possible to disable/comment out the "Script lines most recently executed..." window that pops up when Startup completes? Thanks! I do not get any pop up like that. That sounds like one of your scripts has the command ListLines somewhere in it. That is a command that is generally only used for...

Re: Using the Menu key in a script

Thanks. I didn't know that Shift+F10 = Menu key. That makes it much easier to deal with. I've seen references to that key as RWin, and also with key code SC15D which would let you do things like: RAlt & SC15D::MsgBox But that was messy in all kinds of ways. Shift+F10 was the solution. So I end up wi...

Using the Menu key in a script

Hi. There's a simple macro I would like make but can't figure out how. I want it to press and release the Windows menu key on the right (the one that brings up context menus) followed by {DOWN}{ENTER}. And that's it. But I can't figure out how to properly specify that key, or even be certain how tha...

Re: Hotkey Help - Display Active AHK Hotkeys and Hotstrings

ya i had looked to see if it was defined in the script and kind of suspected it wouldn't be.

But editing the registry key did it. Thanks.

Re: Hotkey Help - Display Active AHK Hotkeys and Hotstrings

How can I make Hotkey Help use Notepad++ when it opens a script for editing? I just did a clean installation of Windows 7, and the Hotkey Help script is using the native Windows Notepad. I'm pretty sure that previously it would open scripts in NPP. am I remembering that incorrectly, or have I just f...

Re: Scripts works fine until I switch application windows.

Thanks for the reply. Pressing left shift didn't fix it. But I figured out what it was. I am using an alternative for Alt+Tab window switching, called VistaSwitcher. And that was causing it. It was right around the time I started using that that I noticed that the ahk script was only working intermi...

Scripts works fine until I switch application windows.

I can't figure this out. I have a script that contains a bunch of simple replacements like this ::replacethis::withthis ::replacethat::withsomethingelse These are a block of code inside a script that also contains hot key commands. These were mostly working fine. Sometimes I would notice that these ...

I would like to combine the Right control key and the AppsKey so that when I hold them both, they would function like the Left Win key. So that for example, I'd be able to use RCtrl + AppsKey plus the arrow keys to reposition windows. I've tried thinks like.... [size=200]RControl & appskey::Lwin ; t...

Follow on from previous post.

Re: AutoHotkey Startup (Consolidate AHK Scripts' Tray Icons)

Thanks for the reply. Strange. When I run the individual scripts on their own, I don't get the ListLines window. And when I run Startup without any scripts or folders in the menu, I don't get the ListLines window either. But when I run Startup with a folder reference, but remove all scripts from the...
