How to Add AHK (AutoHotkey) Scripts to Windows Start Up

I was responding to a member's question and the topic of adding AutoHotkey scripts to Windows start up, so they ran automatically when Windows boots up, came up, so I thought I'd create a separate post that I could always point to in the future...

If you're unfamiliar with AHK, you just download it from their website and install it (or unzip it, if you get the zip version), then you simply call the AutoHotkey.exe followed by the path to the script you want to run.

FTP Voyager Reverse-Engineering KeyGen Tutorial ( with a STaRDoGG mention ;) )

So, I was sent a link to this tutorial a while ago, and knowing how tutorials (and sites) like these disappear in a cloud of smoke unexpectedly all the time, I saved it locally. Thought I'd repost it here since it mentioned me. Wink

Here's How:

Plex Media Server: How To Update Your Libraries and / or Optimize Your Database

A very quick "How To", to show you how to immediately do a library update and / or optimize your Plex Media Server (PMS) database (library), through Plex.

  1. Made some changes to your Plex folders outside of the Plex interface, such as recently added files, movies, music, or whatever, and need to have PMS see them NOW instead of waiting for it's scheduled update check?

  2. Want to make sure your PMS library is nice and cleaned up, running fast, not using up unnecessary bloat on your hard drive, etc.?

Plex Search Broken - [Solution]

Plex Media Server Search Doesn't Work. No Search Results.

Symptoms

I've recently run into a long lasting problem with my Plex Media Server (PMS), where doing any search, be it in the PMS web interface itself, or any of Plex's apps, would always end up with "No matches found." Even if I was looking directly AT matches right on the screen, with my very own eyes (which are still pretty good, I might add, even at my age. Wink ).

What Version of NDIS is My Computer Using?

Need to know which version of the NDIS driver is installed on any network card on your computer?

Maybe you're fighting with MiraCast Wink like half the internet is, and have come to realize that one requirement is a WiFi network card that supports at minimum NDIS 6.3?

You've come to the right place (but as a regular GeekDropper, you already knew this, right? ... Tongue ), it's cake, just:

  • Fire up Windows PowerShell: Windows Key + R , type "powershell" , press Enter

PhraseExpander Introductory Video

Almost 2 years ago, we gave a review here on GeekDrop for one of our favorite software programs, "PhraseExpander" (PE for short).

Way back then it was already beyond useful; in our opinion, it's one of those "absolutely must have" programs, but since then it's gone to a whole new level of awesomeness, and just keeps getting better, since the developer is constantly fixing and improving it.

I was helping out one of our forum poster's who was trying to get his Privoxy running as a Windows service, but ran into trouble, so I figured I'd whip up a quick video tutorial while I was at it.

It's a fairly simple process, and "shouldn't" cause too much trouble. If anyone has any other tips / tricks / additions, please post! Smile

How To Fix an Overheating Laptop (WITHOUT having to take it apart!)

I recently was repairing a few problems with a Toshiba Satellite laptop (L305D-S5938 in this particular case) for someone and was getting nowhere real fast, because it overheated if you just looked at it funny. The second something normal caused the fan to get a little louder, *poof*, off it went; just shut right off in the middle of whatever you were doing. And on top of that, when it wasn't shutting off, it just took foreverrrrr to do anything. Anything.
