AutoHotkey is a free, open source macro-creation and automation software utility that allows users to automate repetitive tasks. It is driven by a custom scripting language that is aimed specifically at providing keyboard shortcuts, otherwise known as hotkeys.

AutoHotkey_L is a fork of AutoHotkey which adds a long list of new features and fixes some bugs. Anything that can be done with AutoHotkey can also be done with AutoHotkey_L. Scripts written for AutoHotkey will also run on AutoHotkey_L, with some exceptions.

To install AutoHotkey, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install autohotkey

To upgrade AutoHotkey, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade autohotkey
