How can I use procexp64  to tell  WHEN a specific window was opened?

For example

At 10:00 AM I open MS Word Test.docx and it is the only window open.
At 10:05 AM I customize Word's Quick Access Toolbar by taking the "More Commands" option which opens a second "Word Options" window with bunches of choices that are not related to this question.

ProcExp64 has a "Find Window's Process" tool which is a circular icon that I call the "magic bullseye".

I drag the bullseye over the Test.Docx window and see the process is WINWORD.EXE with PID =6160
But, I drag the bullseye over the Word Options window, and I see the the same PID=6160.

Is there anyway to get ProcExp to give me the time each of the two windows were first opened?

I am trying to get better at using procexp, so do not give me answers that are specific to the  MS Word example.  I want answers that apply to multiple applications.

And, if ProcExp cannot do what I want, are there other spy tools that can?

P.S.  Recently I have been troubleshooting an annoying problem.  At night I close my laptop lid but the computer keeps running.  In the morning there is a message that popped up. It would be very useful to know when the message first appeared. But, this EE question  should focus entirely on the general question "when did a window first open?" .

We are looking for a tool that would add users to an AD group based on the volume listed in the home directory path. It looks like Hyena and ADManager Plus might have these capabilities. Would anybody recommend one over the other or know another program that they think is better?

I would like to use applocker to block access for all domain users (except 10 End User support domain ids) from
accessing the following apps :

a) cmd.exe (which can be named as something else as a user may copy cmd.exe to another name, say cmm.exe)
b) mmc.exe
c) PowerShell

Q1:
Kindly provide step by step (with screen shots if possible) on how to configure the above

Q2:
Not feasible for me to go PC (or laptop) by PC to set this.  Do provide a mass deployment method.  We have
SCCM & Desktop Central so if the rules/policies can be saved & mass 'pushed' to all the PCs, will be good
to provide the steps

Q3:
Is applocker free for use as long as we have a Win 7 (or Win 8) licence (as in our case)?

remote connect tool should able to connect - remote PC with/without  intervention by user at remote pc ( of course with credential configured)

 I have checked with Teamviewer, which offer above features, but the price is too huge for an individual to bear the cost.

I would like to check if specific proxy service  (sc queryex ProxyClientSvc) is running on
the 3000 PCs/laptops in our organization.

A past SCCM administrator was able to push installers (*.msi) to the 3000 PCs & install it
but our new SCCM administrator told me it's not possible to issue Windows commands
(eg: dir,  sc queryex ...) from SCCM to the PCs.  Is this so?

I've used a HP product in the past which could issue OS commands (Windows & UNIX)
to hundreds/thousands of PCs & UNIX endpoints & get the outputs for all the endpoints
back in one single output file which indicates the hostname/IP of each endpoints, the
output for each points segregated by =======  between each endpoints' output

Q1:
If it can be done by SCCM, can someone can give me a step by step instruction (with
screen shots) so that I can share with the new SCCM administrator?  The exact SCCM
command I wanted to issue is:
  sc queryex ProxyClientSvc | find/i "Running"
  if %errorlevel% neq 0 echo service is not running

Q2:
Possible to run Windows .bat or .cmd scripts or PowerShell scripts via SCCM to be
executed to all endpoints & then get the output back?
