I wrote an AutoHotKey function today to paste decoded URL-encoded strings, which I have to do quite a lot because I’m emailing people about files stored on SharePoint quite often now. It is useful to be able to paste a folder name or a file name without “%20” in the place of every space, and other URL-encoding garbage.

I like AutoHotKey well enough, but I wish it didn’t have its own programming language. I’d rather just use AutoHotKey to set hotkeys, and call out to something else (C#, Python, Swift, JavaScript, even VB Script) for the functionality. I suppose that is also possible with AutoHotKey. Or, I could write my own Windows app to do that, somehow. But if I did that, I might have to implement my own programming language to support its scripting. 😅
