Accessing Desktop

7 posts in this topic

How would I access the desktop on a Windows machine. That is, I would like to write a script to setup my Windows environment when I log in.

To access a normal application window I use:

WinWaitActive ("Window_Title","Window_Text", 2)

How would I do something similar to access my desktop?

I don't get it.

You want winwaitactive() to check if the desktop is visible? You want to minimize everything to view the desktop?

I want to be able to move my mouse around on the desktop to launch applications with my mouse.

not sure if there is a way to know where the icons are, maybe a dll call, but you could have a setup process and have the user click each one and save the coordinates then use MouseMove() and MouseClick(). why not just click them yourself or use Run() to execute the program from a list in a gui or something.
