F3 sends a key such as x

I need a script in which pressing F3 sends a key such as x.
and that all that is sent in the shortest possible time I did this but it is slow I think

Code: Select all

F3:: sendinput x{enter}x{enter}x{enter}x{enter}x{enter}x{enter}

It was quite fast when I tested it.

Perhaps this is the issue:
If a script other than the one executing SendInput has a low-level keyboard hook installed, SendInput automatically reverts to SendEvent (or SendPlay if SendMode InputThenPlay is in effect). This is done because the presence of an external hook disables all of SendInput's advantages, making it inferior to both SendPlay and SendEvent.
