My case is simple and i don't know what i'm doing wrong, the tutorial is clear about this, it should work. When i write pste i want the contents of the clipboard send as keystrokes(i'm using it to paste text in windows console that do not support ctrl+v) so far i've tried

:*:pste::Send, %clipboard%
:*:pste::Send %clipboard% ;no comma
:*:pste::Send, %Clipboard%
:*:pste:: %clipboard%
:*:pste:: %Clipboard%

in every single case it writes down the text after :: so i type pste and the script writes %clipboard% or Send, %Clipboard% and so forth if it matters im not compiling the ahk
