I want to make AutoHotKey listen to a key sequence, specifically Start-C -> D, and do some action. How can I do that? I couldn't find a way to define a key sequence.

Check out AutoIt (what autohotkey was based on), _WinAPI_SetWindowsHookEx() function for complete key sequence capture. – MaQleod Sep 1 '11 at 16:11

Here's an example that lets you press Win+C, then it waits for one more key.

  Input, x, L1

  if x = d
    Send 1 ;do something
  else if x = e
    Send 2 ;do something else


See the Input documentation for more ideas and examples.
