I'm back. I finished moving to my new apartment and can again write articles for you. The first software that I would like to point your attention to is Autohotkey: a nice little freeware application that has many purposes.
Autohotkey is a scripting language and execution engine basically that can be used to create small portable applications for all kinds of purposes. From changing the system volume over window behavior to disabling or overriding Windows hotkeys.
Take a look at its feature set:
The official website is a good start to get acquainted with the program. It offers documentation of the programs functionality including a tutorial section for new users that explain the basics of creating a script with the scripting language, and an active user forum where developers and users can exchange information on. The program itself is available as a portable version and setup.
If you are looking for scripts created with AutoHotkey, check out the scripts section in the forum as it is offering scripts for all purposes that you can download to your local system and run there then.
