Start with the Tutorial and learn how to set up a hotkey and how to Send keys.

You script would like this:

- a hotkey::
- Send key-combo to copy text to the clipboard (hint: what would you press now? Look up those keys)
- the FileAppend command to save the clipboard text to a text file (Clipboard is a special variable in AHK)
- close off with a Return

Try something, post code if you get stuck - and next time post in the Ask for Help section :-)
