I cannot test it, but you could try:

Code: Select all

^n::
ControlFocus, , ahk_class Acrobat.exe
ControlSend,, {Down}, ahk_class Acrobat.exe
Return
But it will probably only work on active and inactive windows, not minimized ones.
Also, try to run script as admin, if Acrobat runs with elevated rights...

Thank you for posting

But it doesn't work. Nothing happened.
I also tried admin.

I never use acrobat in minimized. It's always in active windows.

You don't ;) Only by reading the docs and then using trial and error.
It's an option of ControlSend's first parameter Control
https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/ControlSend.htm#Parameters wrote:Control
Can be either ClassNN (the classname and instance number of the control) or the control's text, both of which can be determined via Window Spy. When using text, the matching behavior is determined by SetTitleMatchMode. If this parameter is blank or omitted, the target window's topmost control will be used. If this parameter is ahk_parent, the keystrokes will be sent directly to the target window instead of one of its controls (see Automating Winamp for an example).
[...]
Using ControlSend succesfully with random programs is not an exact science - it often depends on trying different things...
