IDEA: Till Only One Left (TOOL)
« on: November 29, 2006, 10:11:07 PM »
Hi,

Actually this is a coding snack to myself. I had only used AHK for adding hotkeys to launch some program and text replacement. Now i would like to explore more of AHK to write a small app myself.

As have not done any programming before, i would like to ask for some help on how to start...now reading the help documentation for AHK...

So for the actual idea:

I would like to write something that will minimise all windows (including open/save dialogs) except the active current window. That means if i activate another window, all other windows will minimise automatically.

Essentially, there will always be only one window on my workspace.

Joe
