T3:11 | AutoHotKey Tip: Convert Number to Phone Number

This week’s Tech Tip Tuesday includes a short video that shows you how to use AutoHotKey to automatically change a string of numbers 1112223333 to (111) 222-3333.

If you need an overview of AutoHotkey, check out these posts: herehere,  and here.

Pause the video and type the code into your AHK script.  Or, send me a message and I’ll send it to you.

Once you have the code copied, you can type a phone number without the formatting (e.g. 1112223333).  Then, type a space and the phrase “converttophone” followed by a space.  As shown in the video, AHK will format the number string for you automatically.
