One of my more favorite AHK scripts utilizes the PAUSE key to rapidly email myself the current website link. You could of course rebind the key to whatever you want. Here are the quick glance at what it does:

  • Email client like Postbox, Mailbird, Outlook, etc
  • Run Command
  • MailTo: with prepopulated recipient
  • Self-hosted

The AHK script is amazing! 🌟 It incorporates an emoji in the email subject. To ensure proper encoding and create a space, I prepend the tilde symbol (~) with %20. Otherwise, an encoding issue may occur. In my note app, I rely on hashtags for organization, filtering, and sorting. Likewise, I’ll employ hashtags in my email for easy categorization.
