    What is "automove"?

    Character walks forward without the player holding W

    and also caps lock toggles sneak/crouch on and off (useful if you want to sneak for a while and don't want to hold down shift the whole time)

    what is hotkeys?

    @JimThio They're basically shortcuts. In this case, you can assign a weapon, shield, or spell to 1-8, so that when you press that number, you equip whatever you assigned.
