Select Window - more puzzles


Recommended Posts

The Select Window dialog tool in Windows 10 seems radically different to that in XP.

 

Q1: Why are all the built-in Windows accessories included? I have none of them on my desktop.

Q2: Why are so many windows duplicated?

Q3: So does it matter which to specify?

Dunno. But here's a simple macro to display the windows as ME sees them. The list of windows (following the macro) is from Windows 7, and also shows many duplicates. Notice also that two windows show as being on top. Sometimes there will be more than two on top.

Repeat with Windows: Place title in %T1% [with alphabetic sort option]
If Window Title "%T1%" is on top
Variable Modify String: Append " *** This window is on top ***" to %T1%
End If
Variable Modify String: Append %T1% to %T2%
Variable Modify String: Append %T98% to %T2%
Variable Set String %T1% ""
Repeat End
