Oh, okay, thanks for your time. ^_^
I found something known as ImageSearch in the Internet.

;                                image differ from desktop. e.g GIF
;                   $resultPosition - Set where the returned x,y location of the image is.
;                                     1 for centre of image, 0 for top left of image

Func _ImageSearch($findImage,$resultPosition,ByRef $x, ByRef $y,$tolerance)
   return _ImageSearchArea($findImage,$resultPosition,0,0,@DesktopWidth,@DesktopHeight,$x,$y,$tolerance)
EndFunc

Func _ImageSearchArea($findImage,$resultPosition,$x1,$y1,$right,$bottom,ByRef $x, ByRef $y, $tolerance)
    ;MsgBox(0,"asd","" & $x1 & " " & $y1 & " " & $right & " " & $bottom)
    if $tolerance>0 then $findImage = "*" & $tolerance & " " & $findImage
    $result = DllCall("ImageSearchDLL.dll","str","ImageSearch","int",$x1,"int",$y1,"int",$right,"int",$bottom,"str",$findImage)

    ; If error exit
    if $result[0]="0" then return 0
    
    ; Otherwise get the x,y location of the match and the size of the image to
    ; compute the centre of search
    $array = StringSplit($result[0],"|")
   
   $x=Int(Number($array[2]))
   $y=Int(Number($array[3]))
   if $resultPosition=1 then
      $x=$x + Int(Number($array[4])/2)

I just don't get the syntax. If you can explain this to me, I would be really thankful :D

I've never used it, it is one of those which require an external library (dll) and there are many different versions.

However there is a massive thread about how to use that in example scripts forum (and more different dlls than you can shake a stick at)

#include <ImageSearch.au3>
Run("RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL")
Sleep(2000) ; Delay for opening Control Panel
$findImage = "image1.bmp"  ; UDF detects bmp files.
$resultPosition = 0 ; 0 Top Left Corner Of İmage     -  1 Center of image
$x = 0
$y = 0
$tolerance = 0  ; 0 is no tolerance. You can set 0 between 255 for tolereace.
$image =  _ImageSearch($findImage,$resultPosition,$x,$y,$tolerance)
If $image = 1 Then
MouseMove($x,$y,0)
Else
MsgBox(0,"Image Search","Bmp file not found.")
Endif

 

Here is an example for you ;)
