Autohotkey

Autohotkey is a capable Windows macro and hot key creator. Below is a script I use for general use. The key feature is the password holder. If your company forbids storing passwords in a browser or other spots this may be an alternative.

Steps to get this to work:
  1. Install Autohotkey
  2. Input the below text into notepad and save as an *.ahk file.
  3. Save the file somewhere and add the shortcut to the startup folder
  4. The bottom hot keys are popup messages that have a quick menu of your hot keys
  5. Change everything in red to something useful, like your name.
  6. Let me know if you have questions.
