Use Mac hotkeys in Windows

Maybe you're used to Macs, love your Mac keyboard, and have to use Windows. Maybe, like me, you occasionally write Win8 apps in Parallels on a MacBook. I heavily use option+arrow and cmd+arrow to manipulate text, but the keys aren't the same in Windows. Here's how I fixed it:

Download AutoHotKey:
http://www.autohotkey.com/

Clear out the default script, and put this in:

#Right::Send {End}
#Left::Send {Home}
#+Right::Send +{End}
#+Left::Send +{Home}
!Right::Send ^{Right}
!Left::Send ^{Left}
!+Right::Send +^{Right}
!+Left::Send +^{Left}

Hit save, and breathe easy.
