I want to send ctrl+End, ctrl+shift+home, ctrl+c when I press w, I am using this combination to copy all the text (ctrl+a ctrl+c does not work in the application I am using). This script is not working.

w::Send, ^{End}^{Shift}{Home}^c

Sending {Shift} sends Shift as a keypress, not a modifier. You need to use the + character instead.

Try this:

w:: Send, ^{End}^+{Home}^c
