GUIPropView to Display Extensive Information about All Open Application on Windows

GUIPropView is a new free portable too by NirSoft that displays extensive information about all windows currently opened on your system. The upper pane of GUIPropView displays all top-level windows, and when you select a window in the upper pane, the lower pane displays the list of all child windows of the selected top-level window.

When you select and right-click one or more open windows listed in the app, you have a list of action options right on your finger tip, such as switch to, close, hide, show, minimize, maximize, disable, enable, etc.

By default, GUIPropView doesn’t display the invisible top-level windows, but you can change it by turning on the ‘Display Hidden Windows‘ and ‘Display Windows With (0, 0) Size‘ options from TopLevel drop-down menu.

What’s more interesting is the Target icon that you drag and hover over a particular window to find the correspond window item in the app. GUIPropView will automatically select the top-level window in the upper panel and the child window in the lower panel.

GUIPropView is a new tool that replaces a very old tool called WinLister and works on any version of Windows, from XP and up to Windows 10 with both 32-bit and 64-bit editions supported. As all tools from NirSoft, it’s also completely free and portable that doesn’t require any installation process or additional DLL files.
