USB Barcode Scanner to Web Browser

01 Mar 2017, 14:03


First off, I'm totally new to AHK and have very basic scripting knowledge.

I bought a USB Barcode Scanner which acts as a USB Keyboard when plugged in.

Basically, when I open Notepad and scan one of my barcodes, it enters a URL followed by the Return key.

What I want is pretty simple. When I scan something, I want AHK to open a new tab in Firefox at the URL included in the Barcode.

I've seen scripts in here that does similar things but I have a little bit of learning to do before I can understand those better.

Thanks a lot
