Questions about general computing hardware and software are off-topic for Stack Overflow unless they directly involve tools used primarily for programming.

The tool directly involved was the autohotkey scripting language and it was used for programing (it involved code, a set of coded instructions).

Was this question correctly closed?

Note that autohotkey is a tool used for mapping keys, but that does not mean that it is limited in that way. It is actually a very powerful scripting-language capable of doing practically anything.

This seems on topic to me. I'm afraid it was probably closed because it might sound like it's about windows (as in, 'how do I map a key' and not programming). I voted to reopen –  Benjamin Gruenbaum Jul 7 '13 at 7:35
aaand... it's reopened. –  Pëkka Jul 7 '13 at 7:56
