My 100th publication here at Experts Exchange is an article that presents a program called ArticlesVideosEE, which is able to download the Title, Views, Endorsements, and Points for each article and video whose link is in a list. You may read the article here:

How to download number of Views, Endorsements, Points for Experts Exchange Articles and Videos

This video Micro Tutorial is a supplement to that article, providing a demonstration of the program.

Video Steps

1. Download and install AutoHotkey


If you do not already have AutoHotkey installed, read this EE article:

AutoHotkey - Getting Started

Follow the instructions in that article to download and install AutoHotkey.

2. Download the ArticlesVideosEE program


If you have not yet downloaded the ArticlesVideosEE program, read my EE article:

How to download number of Views, Endorsements, Points for Experts Exchange Articles and Videos

Download the ArticlesVideosEE program attached at the bottom of that article.

3. Create a plain text file with the URLs of your EE articles and videos


Following the instructions in my article, use Notepad (or whatever text editor you prefer) to create a file with the URL list (each article/video URL on a separate line).

4. Run the ArticlesVideosEE program


In Windows/File Explorer (or whatever file manager you use), double-click the ArticlesVideosEE.ahk file to run it.

The above works because a standard installation of AutoHotkey (done in Step #1) associates the .AHK file extension with the AutoHotkey program.

Respond to the Browse For Folder prompt to navigate to the folder where you want the Results file stored.

Respond to the Browse For File prompt to navigate to your URL list.

5. Open the Results file


Open the results file in Notepad, Excel, or whatever program in which you want to view it.

That's it! If you find this video to be helpful, please click the thumbs-up icon below. Thank you for watching!
