Open, show, minimize Windows Apps, Chrome Shortcuts, Chrome Apps

This AutoHotkey script is to Open, Restore or Minimize (if it is already opened) the desired Window or Chrome Apps, using the shortcuts key (hotkeys) that you want to set.

There are two utility functions for this purpose:

a) Useful for regular Window Apps

Code: Select all

OpenOrShowAppBasedOnExeName(AppAddress)
b) Specially useful for Chrome Apps and Chrome Shortcuts

Code: Select all

OpenOrShowAppBasedOnWindowTitle(WindowTitleWord, AppAddress)
Configuration Examples

Code: Select all

F7:: OpenOrShowAppBasedOnExeName("C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe")

Code: Select all

F8:: OpenOrShowAppBasedOnWindowTitle("Gmail", "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --app=https mail.google.com /mail/")

Note: The Source Code with the last actualization can be found here https://github.com/JuanmaMenendez/AutoHotkey-script-Open-Show-Apps

Thanks

Thanks @SL5 !

I added to it another functionality ( Alt + ~ ) to switch between open windows of the same App.
It works besides regular Window Apps, with Chrome Shortcuts and Chrome Apps as well.

Mac has very similar functionality with the same hotkey.
