Quality alternatives

Executioner... Wow. This thing is unbelievable. It's not even been downloaded 100 times in over a year and yet it's more advanced than everything on this list other than AutoIt @_@
It's included plugins do 2/3 of the things I need.

WinParrot is quite handy for quick tasks and I'll keep it as well. Very glad I found this site. SO handy.

Not meant for games

Unfortunately AutoHotKey doesn't always function in games.

Many advances have been made since this comment in Aug 2011. AutoHotkey now supports games very well without any special treatment.

If you find that you still have difficulty interacting with some applications, explore the SendMode and SetKeyDelay settings.

AWESOME! It can save you a lifetime of menial tasks, and solve UI shortcomings of other applications, no more waiting for the author to issue an update, you can improve the user experience by yourself.

Only thing I would like to see improved is the reliability of scripts that require the Sleep command to work properly, mostly mouse/keyboard/menu UI operations.

This thing is the best, most lightweight driver that can handle anything you want with your mouse or keyboard!! It's the answer to all the usual keyboard and mouse drivers crap.
Only downside for IT-dummies: you have to set things up by editing a config file (easy for normal shortcuts though!).

Nota Bene: Config files are no longer necessary.

is AutoHotKey a valid alternative to clipboard tools?

  • a script that accesses the clipboard must be created or downloaded.
  • the documentation provides a link to two clipboard manager scripts.
