Hi there,

Looking for a C# code snip that will display all the currently running Windows (applications) and be able to select a specific window. I have used Winbatch in the past (WinItemNameId) to grab all the valid running windows in the windows XP sessions.  But looking for a c# solution.

Let's say for example, Microsoft Word is running on windows, i want to be able to determine what the word window is called, select it, and then manipulate the application.

Thanks
Greg.
