Errata to the Motley Assortment of AutoHotkey Tips Book

If you’ve purchased (or plan to purchase) the Motley Assortment of AutoHotkey Tips book, you will want to see these comments/corrections from Rick Corbett:

Hi Jack,

I’m slowly ploughing my way through Motley AutoHotkey Tips – First Edition October 4 2018… and loving it. 😄

A couple of things…

One, in ‘4.1.7 Add Secret Windows Tools (God Mode) to QuickLinks Menu‘ you mention creating a special folder to invoke ‘God Mode’. You can also invoke it using just a shortcut. Simply create a new shortcut using %WinDir%\explorer.exe shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} as the target then name it whatever you want.

Two, in the section about ‘Capturing Clipboard Data Type’, search for ‘More advanced techniques may be used as shown below for identifying bitmap data‘. The code isn’t formatted per the original:


No biggie but if anyone copy/pastes the code then they’ll wonder what’s up.

I’ve noticed a few more very minor errors and have made a note of them. Whilst they currently serve as an Aide-mémoire, are they of any interest to you?

Hope this helps…

Rick Corbett

Thanks, Rick!
I will post these fixes and definitely include them in the next edition. Plus, I absolutely want to correct any other errors you’ve found. I go over it numerous times and always seem to find at least one more random typo.
Thanks again,
