Changing UI behavior via AHK (autohotkey)

One thing you can do with autohotkey (AHK) is address certain inconveniences in the UI. My big one was : I almost always use the Menu Editor (surely there's a better way now? It's an old habit.) not so much to edit the menus, but to FIND functions. So, it's my search engine inside LW/LWM.

However, the SEARCH field (a godsend) is not automatically active when you invoke the editor. --It SHOULD be, there's literally zero downside to having it active. (Requested long ago.)-- I find this incredibly aggravating, as it is Yet Another Navigate and Click (YAN&C) that is unnecessary.

BUT, and here's the cool thing: using AHK you can set it up so that AHK automagically mouse-clicks the SEARCH field for you, thereby activating it, so when you invoke the editor it's already in SEARCH MODE.

That's the tiniest iceberg-tip of what AHK can do for you. You can basically make it into a huge macro system for ALL your programs. You can "wedge" it in between hotkeys and the program, and have it execute a series of actions. It is awesome.

Any repetitive action you find irksome should be examined to see if AHK can relieve you of that burden.
