I don't use Notepad++ but there appears to be a good topic in the tutorial section on how to set it up for AHK.

http://ahkscript.org/boards/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=50

Also if you are going to include more than just editors in this topic I would subdivide the different types of tools in the original post into sections with headers.

Hotkey Help - Help Dialog for Currently Running AHK Scripts

AHK Startup - Consolidate Multiply AHK Scripts with one Tray Icon

Google Search, Dictionary, Thesaurus - Quickly Get Information from Specific Web Resources

Nice collection !! Thank you 4 sharing :)

For those who want to manage MS-Windows and use wmi services, this tool will save you a lot of time. Save you're query in vb-script, and most likely ahk will be able to interpret the code.
