Use the GoTo Command to Turn the Subroutine for Reading AHK File Notes into a Hotkey for Peeking into Any File Selected in Windows File Explorer
Last time in my “Peeking at Notes Inside Auto-Startup AHK Script Files (AutoHotkey Startup Control)” blog, I discussed the feature in the AutoStartupControl.ahk script for reading and displaying notes from a .ahk source file.
