How do I list the id and title of all the child windows?

I would like to list out all of the id's and titles of child windows.

Here's what I do:

Close all the IEXPLORE browsers.

Start a new IEXPLORE.

Then go to File -> New Window
-- I believe this spawns a child window

-- Continue for additional windows # Then go to File -> New Window

Currently when I run below code; it only displays information for the actively window.

I would like to display the information for all windows not just the active or focuesed one.

        Dim process As Process
        Dim p2 As Process() = process.GetProcessesByName("IEXPLORE")

        Command1.Enabled = False
        For Each p In p2
            items(0) = p.ProcessName
            items(1) = p.Id.ToString
            If Not IntPtr.Zero.Equals(p.MainWindowHandle) Then
                items(2) = p.MainWindowHandle.ToString
                If GetWindowRect(p.MainWindowHandle, r) <> 0 Then
                    If IsIconic(p.MainWindowHandle) = 0 Then
                        items(3) = "(" & r.Left.ToString & ", " & r.Top.ToString & ")"
                        items(4) = (r.Right - r.Left).ToString & "x" & (r.Bottom - r.Top).ToString
                        items(3) = "[Minimized]"
                        items(4) = "[Minimized]"
                    End If
                    items(3) = "[Error]"
                    items(4) = "[Error]"
                End If
                items(5) = p.MainWindowTitle
                items(2) = ""
                items(3) = ""
                items(4) = ""
                items(5) = ""
            End If

            ListView1.Items.Add(New ListViewItem(items))
