Hi

is it possible for me to use windows to memorize a password for me that would type if I had a certain keystroke.

I am not able to articulate exactly well, but what I mean is like type a short cut for a symbol... that is easy... can I do something like that to recall a password.

any help appreciated.

The only native facility Windows has for that is Credential Manager and that shows up when Windows says "Do you want to remember this password?"

If those passwords are valuable whatsoever don't use AutoHotKey and if you do, make sure there is a means to encrypt the passwords so they're not saved in plain text.  Can you not just use Last Pass?

Second LastPass. Used it for part 3/4 years. It will not, however, allow auto password completion outside the Browser but you can easily copy it from the vault
