How would you like to increase your typing speed by 1,000% ?  This course can easily do that for you!  Not only will it increase your speed, it will increase your accuracy / reliability!  You will be able to type a couple of letters & have it replaced with whole words / paragraphs.

In our daily life it is AMAZING how frequently we re-type the same words over and over.  It might be your name, the name of your company, instructions on performing a recurring task, a greeting, a salutation, etc.  The list is truly endless. 

Text Expansion (HotStrings) are the simplest and fastest way to start automating your computer!  Instead of trying to learn how to type 200 wpm, learn how to type 3 characters that will instantly get replaced by the entire sentences you wanted and it will be typed perfectly EVERY TIME!  The best part is that AutoHotkey is free!

While the basics of HotStrings are very easy to learn, we also take a deep-dive into various scenarios where they can be more complicated & discuss trouble-shooting “tricky” issues.
