How to get the name of a running application

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello yet another time Autoit community :blink:

So basically, what i want to do is that i want to find the title or process name of a running application. no specific application, just any application that is running and located under Windows Task Manager -> Applications

I'm kinda bad at this subject so anyone has some ideas? any help would be appreciated ;)

Hi,

In AutoIt help file. Function Reference -> Process Management -> ProcessList()

Check the example, it's probably what your after

Thanks for the reply buddy.

i didn't explain it correctly, i don't need processes, i need applications, such programs that are listed under "Applications" if you open task manager.

ProcessList lists 200 processes which i can't use ;)

but thanks for the tip :blink:

Hi,

Since Applications tab in Task Manager just lists Window Titles of visible windows...

Then maybe look at Function Reference -> Window Management -> WinList()

Have a look at the example.

Cheers

There's a script by someone called '_WinGetAltTabWinList', you might try checking that out :blink:
