Just wondering if there were a way to add menu entries in the system menu (the menu in the upper left hand corner). I was also wondering how to add buttons next to the minimize, maximize, and close boxes on toolbar. Thanks in advance!

You can't add menu buttons to the titlebar, at least no easy way. You can add menus to system menu using GetSystemMenu to get the menu, and the AppendMenu and othe menu related functions to modify it
