Is there a way to get the list of every single window running or atleast visible on the desktop? Just a list of their names, so for example right now I would have something along the lines of a list with: "Post a New Message - GameDev.Net Discussion Forums - Microsoft Internet Explorer" "Someguy - Conversation" "Windows Explorer" "Notepad" Since all of those windows are running as I type this message? Thank you.

EnumWindows will enumerate all windows on your system. Usage:


BOOL CALLBACK EnumWindowsProc(HWND hwnd, LPARAM lParam)
{
// only list visible windows.
if(IsWindowVisible(hwnd))
{
char szWindowText[MAX_PATH];
memset(szWindowText,0,MAX_PATH);

GetWindowText(hwnd,szWindowText,MAX_PATH);

printf("%s\r\n",szWindowText);
}
return true;
}

// ...
EnumWindows(&EnumWindowsProc,0);
