This is a 12 lecture course for Beginners on using AutoHotKey scripting program to create a Productivity Program.
There is a pre-built program that you download and install as per lecture 1. After installation you tailor it to your personal preferences and can use it directly.
We then look at how to make the program using AutoHotKeys after installing the program.
Each topic will have short scripts that are attached to each lecture so that a specific topic can be explored in more detail with working scripts.
