    Question I want to make a pogram that captures another program's HWND.

    I want to make a pogram that captures another program's HWND. For an example there is a program that will change the title bar's title on Notepad. How is that done?

    Thanks, August

    Thanks.
    There is one thing though. Isn't there a list of handle names out there?

    You can obtain the handle name of a window using programs like spy++, which comes with VC++.

    Alternatives:
    winspector
    winspy++
