Fix: Windows Keeps Asking “How do you want to open this file” for Autohotkey scripts

The Problem

The “How do you want to open this file” prompt keeps popping up even though you specified the program to open your AHK files.

The Cause

You’re probably using AutoHotkey v2.

The Solution

  1. Install Autohotkey v1.
  2. Copy the Autohotkey v2 exe into %ProgramFiles%\AutoHotkey.
  3. Overwrite.
