Bind 1 key to press 2 at the same time

@nilsso the question no one has asked yet is exactly what are you trying to accomplish? I would guess some sort of zooming in an application, which one? Often the app has some of these controls built in, and there will be a much easier way to do it than with Send, which are inherently unreliable.

And my question remains. When you say "windows zoomer", what exactly do you mean - setting the zoom within a specific application, or on the Windows desktop? Because how you go about it changes based on the answer to that question.

The windows 10 zoom application. Its simply zooming in and out by pressing + or - on the numpad.

I guess you mean the Windows Zooming function instead of app? 
In general the zoomlevels is changed in any Application with these keys combinations:

Send("^{NUMPADADD}")
Send("^{NUMPADADD}")
sleep(2000)
Send("^{NUMPADSUB}")
Send("^{NUMPADSUB}")

I think he's talking about the Magnifying tool installed on Windows. The Windows key and + (add sign) will increase the magnification by 100%, even if the program is not open.

HotKeySet("{NUMPADADD}", IncreaseZoom)
HotKeySet("{NUMPADSUB}", DecreaseZoom)
HotKeySet("{ESC}", Close)

While (True)
    Sleep(100)
Wend

Func Close()
    Exit
EndFunc

Func IncreaseZoom()
    Send("{RWIN DOWN}{+ DOWN}{+ UP}{RWIN UP}")
EndFunc

Func DecreaseZoom()
    Send("{RWIN DOWN}{- DOWN}{- UP}{RWIN UP}")
EndFunc

(Had to make it do the + down then up because windows wasn't recognizing that it was being pressed, but this works. Hopefully this is what OP is referring to....

Yes, that seems to do it! Thank u :) I didnt realize it gave me the error in the error lining, my bad. Yeah, the copypaste fucked up somehow. Now it works as inteded. Is there a way to shorten the script down a bit? As mine is only like 4 lines and it would make it easier for me to learn with a smaller easier setup. thank u.

Would this work?:

HotKeySet("{NUMPADADD}")
Send ("{RWINDOWN}{+DOWN}")
Sleep(100)
Send ("{RWINUP}{+UP}")

HotKeySet("{NUMPADSUB}")
Send ("{RWINDOWN}{-DOWN}")
Sleep(100)
Send ("{RWINUP}{-UP}")

No it doesn't,  you will find out when you try and debug that the script will end after a little more than 200 mSecs. ;)
