Use a program to manage your windows hotkeys. I use hoekey for this, very simple to configure.

mehboob114,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forums.

Look at the page for HotKeySet in the Help file for the solution to your problem - who would have thought it was so simple, eh? >_<

Seriously, you need to set the HotKey and then have your script running in the background. Just be careful that the application you are using does not use the same key combination.
