Using Alt-F Keys or Control-F Keys

Recommended Posts


I just started using AutoHotKey in a game I play.

Using the normal Function keys work just great, but when I attempt to use any of the following, they dont work.

ControlSend, , {LALT F2}, ahk_pid %active_id%

ControlSend, , {!F2}, ahk_pid %active_id%

ControlSend, , {^F2}, ahk_pid %active_id%

In game using the left or right alt or ctrl key does the same thing and works, but so far I have not gotten any of the above combinations to work.

What am I doing wrong here?

Thank you!

Then perhaps you should go ask on the AutoHotKey forum! :(

Wrong product to be asking about here. Ask in the AHK forums where you should receive some assistance.
