$var = WinList()

For $i = 1 to $var[0][0]

; Only display visble windows that have a title

If $var[$i][0] <> "" AND IsVisible($var[$i][1]) Then

madmorgan let me first praise your attitude :mellow: it's good you have fun learning! I just want to remind you as well that WinActivate is not something you probably want to use in an If Else statement. It simply activates a window based the title, but does not check whether it is active or not. You need WinActive
