I love windows spy, I'd like to be able to have a hotkey for it. But windows spy doesn't work on itself, so I do not know what to call it.

I want something short of using mousemove and rightclick on the ahk shortcut and enable it.

Any help is helpful!

Solved it

run, C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\AutoHotkey\Active Window Info (Window Spy).lnk

I opened it and looked at the properties in the taskbar

You didn`t really need a hotkey to open one program. Click on program --- send to desktop as shortcut -----copy to taskbar....delete shortcut on desktop.
I wrote a small app to make it easier for me while working with AutoHotkey

Code: Select all

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
;#Warn ; Recommended for catching common errors.
#SingleInstance, force
SetWorkingDir, %A_Scriptdir%
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
