Run AHK script of macOS in Windows

AHKShortcutLikeMac is a utility tool developed by m2nlight for desktop use. It enables you to run an AutoHotKey (AHK) script in your Windows device that will authorize you to use keyboard shortcuts that are commonly used on macOS workstations. This lightweight software solution can be downloaded free-of-charge but, it is important to note that its current release is still in the early stage of development.

A plethora of macOS-like shortcut keys

By simply running the AHK script, you will be able to access and use dozens of shortcut keys. Some of these handy keyboard shortcuts aids you to handle opened windows while others empower you to cope effortlessly with Windows Explorer. Furthermore, there will be hotkeys available to instantly activate hidden files, access and navigate to a specific folder. When you press on the 'Caps Lock' along with a keyboard number, the transparency of your window will be modified.

In addition, it offers shortcut keys that will permit you to quickly edit a document. Installation of this tool is not required at all. The only thing you need to do is keep the script written in AutoHotKey running so, you can use the macOS-like keyboard shortcuts seamlessly. It contains no standard interface and the only way for you to access some of its settings is through your system tray. An icon of this program will be displayed there.

When you right-click on it, the buttons that can make the script stop or pause its running are displayed there. The only downside that this tool has is that some of its shortcut keys can come in conflict with the hotkeys used in other apps. Moreover, you have to bear in mind also that some keyboard shortcuts that you often use in Windows are replaced by new combinations under this utility tool.

Utilize more hotkeys

AHKShortcutLikeMac is a software solution tool that will give you the power to use more hotkey combinations that you habitually adapted for being a long-time user of the macOS system. Apart from that, keyboard shortcuts that you found lacking in Windows can probably be available here. However, as you run the AHK script, expect that some of the keyboard combinations that you have accustomed to use in Windows can possibly not work here anymore.
