I want to use autohotkey to remap the f11 key and the combination ctrl+f11 to something easier accessibele as ctrl+left and ctrl+down.

I tried the following code, but it runs both f11 and ctrl+f11 if I type one of the key hotkeys. I also tried doing the same using the Send command, but then the second hotkey wouldn't work.

>^Left::F11
Return
>^Down::^F11
Return

What am I doing wrong and how can I make this work?

It seems that you use the rebinding syntax key1::key2, but it should be used only for single keys.
Use normal Send instead:

>^Left::
    send {F11}
return

>^Down::
    send ^{F11}
return

Try this :

^Left::F11
^Down::^F11
  • Can it be that it "remembers" me pressing ctrl, when I press ctrl + left that it first sends a f11 and then a ctrl+f11? – Michthan Oct 3 at 9:05
  • Not likely - that would be a bug in AHK. – harrymc Oct 3 at 9:07
