Re this from an ahk Help screen: "Mouse Clicks: To send a mouse click to a window it is first necessary to determine the X and Y coordinates where the click should occur. This can be done with either AutoScriptWriter or Window Spy, which are included with AutoHotkey. The following steps apply to the Window Spy method:

1. Launch Window Spy from a script's tray-icon menu or the Start Menu."

Would someone please tell me how I launch Window Spy?Thanks.

When you have a script running you should see a green H icon in the system tray next to the clock. Right-click on the icon and click Window Spy.

Or go to Start > All Programs > AutoHotkey > AutoIt3 Window Spy.

Right click on any ahk icon in the tray and select "Window Spy". You can also start it directly as the file (AU3_Spy.exe) is in the autohotkey installation folder.

Thank you all. (I find it faster to ask "dumb" questions like this than to struggle through all the help menus. Hope I am not making a pest of myself.)
