Customize your keyboard, joystick, and mouse with an open source scripting language that is backward compatible with AutoIt v2. It includes a quick-start tutorial, an automatic script writer (macro recorder) that records your keystrokes and mouse clicks, and a comprehensive help file. The program can remap keys and buttons, and make virtually any key, joystick button, or mouse button into a hotkey (shortcut key). Hotkeys can also be defined as a combination of any two keys or mouse buttons. Primary features: define abbreviations that expand as you type them (auto-replace); retrieve or change the volume, mute, and other settings of any soundcard; send keystrokes and mouse clicks to any window; launch programs and documents; hide, close, or resize any window; automate game actions by detecting pixel colors; use any joystick as a mouse; build custom popup menus and tray menus; retrieve and change the clipboard's contents; operate upon a collection of files and folders that match a wildcard pattern; read, write, and parse text files; access the registry and INI files; display dialog boxes to interact with the user; and convert any script into an EXE that can be run on any computer.
