For a first-time user, AutoHotkey can be an intimidating experience.
While its benefits in saving time and preventing RSI are undeniable, the general first reaction from users is “Hey.. I am not a programmer.. I can’t do this… It’s too tough… What a waste of time.”
If you are anything like me, you probably spend an upward of 14 hours on your computer, and even with the best ergonomically designed hardware, you are still well on your way to having RSI.
How many times have you wished that you could get your work done by just glaring at the screen when your wrists or neck began to ache? That the pop-up windows would close on their own; that the typos would correct themselves; that the abbreviations you typed would magically turn into words/phrases especially when writing official emails (this last one is my fantasy and I suspect of quite a few corporate executives too).
