Autohotkey Scriptacular

AmpersandAmpersand United StatesRegistered User regular
I've been googling and foruming this for a good day and a half to no avail, so it's with a bit of shame that I now turn to you, stupid technology.

I need an autohotkey script that'll lock down my computer when I press the windows key. Now, I know that Win-L does this, but my laptop keyboard is such that pressing the two simultaneously requires me to stretch my hand more than I think that I should have to in this day and age.

For the life of my I can't figure out how to get autohotkey to take a single key press and turn it into a combination. Any suggestions?


tl;dr : autohotkey script (that works!) for LWin::Lwin & L ..I think. To lock my computer with a single key press.

Ampersand on

    aha! Got it.

    The right script would be Lwin::#l

    so err.. well. Thanks!
