    Unanswered: Controlling Program Windows

    Does anybody know how i could run the 'Minimize all Windows' command in Windows NT from Access VB?

    Also, is there a way of setting the focus to the windows that are open and get the name of the window?

    Thanks

    You can do all these things if you are well versed with api calls. VBA supports api calls that can do a lot of system work like what mentioned here.

    A good web site to look at that has a lot of API calls that can be used in Access is: http://www.mvps.org/access/
