Moving Windows of Other Applications

7 posts in this topic

Forgive me for asking a basic question, but how does one use AutoIt to move a window created by another application?  Ihave a game that runs and the game window is always half off the screen, and I would like to fix that using Auto It.  Also, I would like to be about to move and resize File Explorer windows I have under Windows 8 (in Windows 8, if you resize a File Explorer window, it resizes all File Explorer windows to that size).

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Take Care,

Bob

BobMandel,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

You appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game interaction. Although you do explain that you want to move other GUIs as well, asking about moving the game GUI is getting perilously close to the limits and I would not want you to get into anything more complicated later on. ;)

Dear MilesAhead,

Thanks SO much!  I will try this tonight....

Can you possibly help with my only other need, wanting to play a music file behind an application?  I have a command-line music player, but using a Windows batch file (not AutoIt) it waits until the music is done playing before running the application....

Thanks again for everything!

Take Care,

Bob

oops!  I guess I will not do that again either....

I am not used to such tight forum rules, but I appreciate them and will abide by them....
