AutoHotkey HotString tutorial- Walk through how to create & many uses

AutoHotkey HotString tutorialI believe HotStrings are one of the simplest & most productive tools you can use!  In this AutoHotkey HotString tutorial Jackie Sztuk from JZApp.com and I walk through many uses and how easy they are to create, maintain, and use.  There are some great tutorials on the AutoHotkey site as well as a small script that makes adding new HotStrings a breeze.

If you’d like to have a “spell check” running in every windows program, you can use this Autocorrect script.

Here is the AutoHotkey HotString tutorial Video

Transposing clipboard content in any program- No need to run to Excel!

Transposing clipboard content

While it is easy to use Excel to transpose rows into columns, I’ve created an AutoHotkey script which negates the need to.  Basically it examines what is on the clipboard and replaces tabs with line breaks, then it sends paste to the program thus it is transposing clipboard content.  I have it triggered of hitting a hotkey and comes in pretty handy and can save some time if it is something you do frequently.

Below is a video which demonstrates it usage.

Automating StumbleUpon submissions

I had over 100 URLs I wanted to submit to StumbleUpon.com and wanted to tag them with around 12 interests. This would have taken me quite some to do manually so I wrote an AutoHotKey script to web scrape and cranked it out in no time!
Below is the video demonstrating the Automating StumbleUpon submissions.
