How do I:   (1) find if a task is running (2) make the task visible if it is invisible and (3) maximize the task (make it the active window)?


An additional need is  if the task is WINWORD.EXE, and there are several documents open, how to make one of the documents visible and the active window?    (ex: Doc1, Doc2, and Doc3 are all open and let's say I want to make Doc2 the active visible document/window)
