I am trying to write a hotkey to minimize the current window.

My current attempt is below and it does nothing. I can't see how to make commands like WinMinimize act on the currently acitve window.

According to the AutoHotkey help file, you can use the letter A to indicate the active window:

WinMinimize, A

Ah so it does. Missed that..... – justintime Mar 23 '10 at 16:39
This doesn't always work as intended. E.g. it sometimes sends the WM_MINIMIZE to modal dialog only. There should be a way to get the "main window" of the active window, and send minimize to there. – Ciantic Jan 27 '14 at 18:36
