Tutorial

Ready to get up to speed with your new AHK Enterpad? You’re in the right place. The goal of this 10-minute tutorial is to link a function to a key on the AHK Enterpad enabling you to start your favorite website at the push of a button. You will then be ready to set up your own scripts using your AHK knowledge. Eventually, you might end up with an overlay that looks like this (with a pencil and an eraser).

of your time

Steps

1. Write on your overlay sheet.

If the overlay sheet is already on the Enterpad: Lift the bottom tab of the Enterpad and remove the overlay sheet. You must remove the overlay sheet from the Enterpad to write on it.

Within the rectangle of the key number "001" (top-left corner) on your overlay sheet, write (with a pencil) something to remember the name of your favorite website. Should you have to erase, take care to clean the overlay sheet of eraser residue, as it may affect touch sensitivity.

Lift the bottom tab of the Enterpad and put the overlay sheet under the sheet cover (with the key number "001" at the top left corner of the Enterpad.

2. Start the AHK Enterpad script file.

Use "Windows Explorer" to locate the folder where you put the three AHK template files. Double click on "Enterpad.ahk" to start it.

3. Configure key number "001".

Find the "H" icon at the right end of your Taskbar. (If you can't see it, try showing all the icons by clicking on the arrow next to the icons left of the clock.) Right-click on it, then select "Edit This Script".

Within the script file, locate the "001" markup:

;-----------------------------------------------------------------------1-----
        001:
        Return
        

Insert the following line number 3 (replace the URL with your favorite website address):

;-----------------------------------------------------------------------1-----
        001:
        Run https://cedeq.com
        Return
        

4. Save the script file and reload it.

Save the script file, then close it. Right-click on the "H" icon in your taskbar (as in Step 3), and select "Reload This Script".

5. Done.

Press on the "001" key on your Enterpad and watch your browser going straight to your favorite website.
