The only thing I don't like about that method is that changes to Opt() options are persistent, and as you write longer, more complicated scripts, that kind of thing gets to be painful to keep track of: "Why isn't is recognizing that window? Did I forget to switch WinTitleMatchMode back somewhere, again?"

Been there, done that.

Using the advanced specifications allows each reference to be self contained and independent of that kind of thing.
