Most of those are not hidden, just process that start another process for example the one for sound runs

sndvol32.exe /t

or just

sndvol32.exe

depending on the click or option chosen

Hello,

thanks but if I look for some switches for the exe,

there aren't some.

Is there no possibility to unhide the program with some Windows switches like the hidden windows in the task bar?

Greetings surfer

I guess I'm a bit confused... What do you mean 'unhide'? Where would it end up? What's the price of rice in China :o?

I would like to show the window of that program to configure it with Autoit.

Thats the reason.

I'm still confused!

Is the Process Hidden or is the Window Hidden or Are they both hidden?

If they are both "Hidden", how do you even know it's running?

For instance:

If Zonealarm is installed, the window is hidden respectively moved as smal icon at the left side of your windows clock at the task bar.

I would like to open such "hidden" but running windows to configure it.

Has somebody an hint?

Point Autoit to the program.exe and run it.

Eg Run("C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\zonealarm.exe")

Hello,

ok that works with Zonealarm but if the programm is still and only visible as icon at the clock??

I would like to open any program that is hidden like that.

Double clicking isn't the solution cause of the moving icons at different systems.

Thanks surfer

If the program is already open, why do you want to open it again?

Anyway, this is fairly self explanitory, just put the .exe name you want to find windows for, it will list them all show them all, and you can figure out how to use winsetstate() from there since you'll have the specific window names now for what you want.

Local $FindExeWin = 'Outlook.exe'
Local $ExeWindows = FindWindow(ProcessExists($FindExeWin))
Local $Clip = ''
For $x = 1 To UBound($ExeWindows) - 1
    ControlShow($ExeWindows[$x], '', '')
    If MsgBox(4, 'Save', 'Would you like to save to your clipboard so you can set the state for this window?' & @CRLF & $ExeWindows[$x]) = 6 Then
        $Clip = $Clip & $ExeWindows[$x] & @CRLF
    EndIf
    ControlHide($ExeWindows[$x], '', '')
Next
ClipPut($Clip)

Func FindWindow($az_PID)
    Local $HiddenWindowArray = ''
    Local $az_WindowPID
    Local $gt_GotWinList = WinList()
    For $i = 1 To $gt_GotWinList[0][0]
        $az_WindowPID = WinGetProcess($gt_GotWinList[$i][0])
        If $az_WindowPID = $az_PID And $gt_GotWinList[$i][0] <> '' Then $HiddenWindowArray = $HiddenWindowArray & $gt_GotWinList[$i][0] & Chr(01)
    Next
    Return StringSplit(StringTrimRight($HiddenWindowArray, 1), Chr(01))
EndFunc

Do you mean un-hidding inactive icons and then running that program?

If so running that exe should kick it into life.

Perhaps you could give an example of a program you're trying to run/make active.

The source of the idea is to show the freessh server window to start any configuration.

The server is running and shows only the icon left of the clock.

I don't mean the shortcuts at my task bar. !!!!

But to show that window of the freessh server doesn't work!!!
