    I think WNDCLASSEX is just expanding on WNDCLASS giving extra options.

    AND

    >>> I think WNDCLASSEX is just expanding on WNDCLASS giving extra options.

    You think correctly. If you need the extras that the "ex" gives you, then use the "ex" version, if not you can use the other. Using "ex" versions of things, (there are numerous in Win32 - things develop over time), is not generally dangerous in the early days.

    When you get more experienced, you will discover certain "ex" functions do not work in the same way as the non "ex" version, but don't worry about it now.

    Yes, we know, <fx> makes mental note to gloat when England get knocked out </fx>.
