AutoHotkey a nifty little program for Windows users

AutoHotkey is a really nifty mouse and keyboard macro program that lets you automate your usual “repetitive” boiler plate tasks and play them back with a key-stroke.

I constantly had to type the username/password to login to my work application and found AutoHotkey could easily do it for me.
Here’s an example of a simple macro (Ctrl+Alt+A) that’ll fill up my login form and submit.

^!a::
Send admin{Tab}password{Enter}
return

Here’s a demo of the tool and if you’re impressed Download AutoHotkey!
