Like TextExpander on my iDevices and Mac, Autohotkey is my favorite text expansion program in a Windows environment. I know I have saved hours of time using AHK keyboard shortcuts. You can use the link above to learn more about how to create your own scripts and add the ideas I share below.

Here are 5 shortcuts I use every day, in no particular order (I type the phrase before the | character and the output is what appears after the | character):

  • inc | Inc.
  • pobox | P.O. Box
  • phd | Ph.D.
  • eg | e.g.,
  • firmname | expanded firm name

Anytime I find myself typing a phrase that is somewhat difficult to type, I add it to my shortcuts script. Over the years, the keystrokes saved really add up.

What are your favorite keyboard shortcuts?
