AUTO START AHK SCRIPTS  Topic is solved

18 Jun 2018, 15:40

I shut down my computer daily at work to take home my laptop each day. When I come back the next morning and boot up, I have to run AHK scripts anew. Is there a way to make them just always run, or at least to auto-start themselves when computer boots up each time?

I cannot do anything that requires admin login.

then make a script that run your other scripts for you, or a batch file or ctrl+a+enter

i dont think moving stuff into the start up folder requires admin privileges, but it might be prevented by a group policy or smth, idk

Here's a script I use to automatically run AHK scripts when I need them, and automatically close them when I don't.

Code: Select all

#Persistent
DetectHiddenWindows, On
SetTitleMatchMode, 2

SetTimer, Monitor, 1000

Monitor:
{
	; Example, this will automatically run "Photoshop.ahk" when I open Photoshop.
	RunScript("ahk_exe Photoshop.exe","Photoshop.ahk")

}
Return

RunScript(Program,Script)
{

	IfWinExist, %Program%
	{
	IfWinNotExist, %Script%
	{
		Run, %Script%
		WinWait, %Script%
	}
	} Else {
		IfWinExist, %Script%
		{
			WinClose, %Script%
		}
	}
}
