    Okay both of you, enough.

    ilovec:

    There are numerous ways of doing just about everything on a Windows system. It would appear you are new to this. Get a Windows specific book, Charles Petzold's "Programming Windows" for example, and/or browse the directory/tutorials lists from this site.

    Here's a online Win tut:

    Or you could try Sunlight:

    If you're really a beginner, start slow - you're not going to control the OS from the beginning.
