AutoHotkey is a free, open-source macro-creation and automation software utility that allows users to automate repetitive tasks in Microsoft Windows. Any application user interface can be modified by AutoHotkey (for example, overriding the default Windows control key commands with their Emacs equivalents). It is driven by a custom scripting language that is aimed specifically at providing keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys.
In speedrunning, AutoHotkey is mostly used as a macro for Bunnyhopping or ABHing in the Source Engine games, because the aliases are broken. For the list of AutoHotkey scripts, see AutoHotkey/Scripts.
