I used a macro recorder for AutoHotkey in the past, but now I can't seem to find it at all.

Unfortunately, the original archive is gone after Autootkey moved to GitHub.

However we are lucky that still has a copy:

There also once was an alternative named, but this page now is flagged by Mozilla/Google as being taken over by malware.

Unfortunately John T's answer is only half of the solution. AutoScriptWriter is no more part of the newest AHK Installer. It is only part of the full old version of AHK, called by the somewhat misleading name "AutoHotkey Basic".

  • Go to the download page
  • Find "Installer for AutoHotkey Basic"
  • If you do not need UniCode, you can install this one, it includes AutoScriptWriter. However I recommend to use the new AHK, so this is not the solution.
  • Instead I recommend that you "download this zip file instead", at
  • In this ZIP there is a directory called AutoScriptWriter
  • Copy this complete directory somewhere, including the DLL.
  • You can run AutoScriptWriter.exe from within this directory.

Note that AutoScriptWriter does not create UniCode documents, so the Save button is useless now. However you can use the Clipboard to copy the text portions you want.

This solution works for me as of 2011-10-25

(+1) - with donation. Thanks for your brilliant work on the Macro Recorder. I was looking for something like this, came across yours, and in a few minutes was able to automate something that would have taken a few hours of tedious effort. Best part is that it was easy to figure out without reading any tutorials -- just a little trial and error. Thanks. –  Assad Ebrahim Aug 23 '14 at 14:14
