There is a hurdle i have encountered in closing all the programs. I would like to close only pop-up windows i.e. those programs which appear on the TaskBar. Also,
if any program asks for the Save dialog before quitting, then the default selection or 'Yes' should be automatically selected before closing the program without user's intervention. Please help me complete this program.

Q:
I would like to thank the experts jkr and zyqwert for helping me
solve the Enumwindows problem.
Now, there is another hurdle i have encountered in closing all the programs. I would like to close only pop-up windows i.e. those programs which appear on the TaskBar. Also,
if any program asks for the Save dialog before quitting, then the default selection or 'Yes' should be automatically selected before closing the program without user's intervention. Please help me complete this program.
C:
NatasBoy - this is a completely different task ;-)
But anyway, responding to 'Save' dialogs is difficult to accomplish automatically - just consider that the 'OK' or 'Save' button (you already see it) may be named arbitrarily, it is also hard to find out what dialog control code it uses (well, this can be done easily for MFC applications, as the use the same conventions, but is almost impossible for 'unknown' apps)

Don't try to cheat here at  EE using multiple accounts - and, please, don't do that so obvious ;-)

1. Use "EnumWindows" function to enum all windows;
2. In enum callback function, you handle all windows that   have "WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW"
    style,  post "WM_CLOSE" message to these windows ;
3. Automatically selection is not a possibility;
