    Monitoring processes

    I am currently writing a program that keeps an eye on processes running in windows. The program uses the handles of the processes to move them around, resize etc. The problem I am having is keeping track of the processes and gaining 'access' to them quickly without a Process.GetProcess() and then having to look through that array to find the one I want. Does anyone have any pointers to make this less cumbersome?

    Perhaps you're looking for:
    Code:
    System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessById(Id);
    System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName(Name);
