If you would like to get detailed information about all the currently opened windows on your computer, then GUIPropView will serve you well. The free software lists the windows in a hierarchical order, starting with top-level ones. In addition to giving you information about the windows, the program allows you to perform some actions on them.

Using GUIPropView

We downloaded the ZIP archive that contained the appropriate edition for our computer since there were versions for both 64-bit and 32-bit systems. We did not need to install the software or use any additional DLL files. We simply extracted it to a folder from where we launched it directly.

The main program window displayed a list of the windows that were opened on our computer. Apart from the menu and tool bars, the user interface was divided into upper and lower panes.

The upper pane displayed the top-level windows, and the lower pane displayed the child windows of the top-level window that we selected. The program did not by default list top-level windows that were hidden, but we could enable their display when we wanted from the "TopLevel" menu.

Each pane gave us many types of information, and the lower part of the program window showed us the total number of child windows in the selected top-level window and the number of child windows selected on the lower pane.

When we wanted to find a specific window, we dragged the target icon into the window that we were interested in inspecting. The program automatically selected the appropriate top-level and child windows on the upper and lower panes respectively.

Right-clicking a top-level window allowed us to manipulate it in various ways. For example, we could maximize, minimize, hide, show, enable, disable or close a window.

GUIPropView supported command-line options, which was ideal considering that the program was geared more towards experts.


GUIPropView is a handy program for displaying detailed information about all open windows. The program is easy to use although some of the details it provides only make sense to those with relevant knowledge.
