Swithing windows to/from Outlook

Here's what I'm trying to do.. Reply to an email, new window pops up. The 'title' will always be different since it's the subject of the email. Copy a piece of that email, switch to another program, run a command with that copied piece. Switch back to the reply and paste some text.

 

I've got everything down but switch back to a window that changes it's name all the time. I can't put in a command to switch to "window X" since the name will be different. Here's what I've come up with. First, save the window name as a variable, do the other stuff, then use that variable for a window name to switch back to. Problem is, how? :)

You are right on what to do. Here is how:

 

// When you have the reply window open, set the variable to the Window Title
Variable Set String %T1% from Window Title
// Do other stuff with your macro
// When you're done with the other stuff, recall the Variable you set to the window title
Activate Window: "%T1%"

 

Here is the Direct Editor Script

 

<REM2:When you have the reply window open, set the variable to the Window Title><TVAR2:01:06:><REM2:Do other stuff with your macro><REM2:When you're done with the other stuff, recall the Variable you set to the window title><ACTIVATE2:%T1%>
