Beginners question - stopping a script

16 Aug 2018, 20:44

Hi, I found an old post on how to stop a script, but it doesn't seem to be working, here is my script

+1::
Send, My First Script
return
Escape::
ExitApp
Return

I am not sure if I should be running the script? I have tried both ways and it is still running

Thanks and sorry I am an absolute beginner
Matt.

You want a script to stop another script? Rather right-click on the script's icon in the systray and choose "Exit". (In emergency kill all Autohotkey.exe processes via the task manager or re-boot the computer)
For the future, add Esc::ExitApp to your script to be able to exit it via the Esc key.

I was over thinking that one for sure.
