Installation - AutoHotkey Script (recommended method for Windows)

The AutoHotkey scripts are highly customizable editions of UltimateKEYS. To work properly, the Windows keyboard has to be set to standard US QWERTY and at least AutoHotkey v1.1 is required.


Important - Known limitations of AutoHotkey, Windows and Linux

Win/Linux :  When changing the Windows/Microsoft Live/Linux password, using another keyboard layout (like SW) can INTERFERE in some cases where your keystrokes are either registered via the other layout or as standard US QWERTY.

Win (AHK) :  On the login screen, the layout script will NOT be loaded, which can result in the WRONG input !
Linux :  On the login screen, the layout might NOT be available, which can result in the WRONG input !

=> Win/Linux :  Only use "BASIC LATIN" characters (codes 32 to 126) for the Windows, Microsoft Live and Linux passwords !
Otherwise, it might be impossible to type any Unicode character higher than "Basic Latin" at the login screen/prompt (due to a different keyboard configuration) ! => ACCOUNT LOCKOUT
=> Win/Linux :  To be "better safe than sorry", ALWAYS make your system passwords VISIBLE during modification !
