This may have already been done before either here or elsewhere but I have tried searches till I'm blue.  I love programs like WinWarden and ZoneSize, but to keep entering height, width and screen position values until you get the window or zone where you want it is a pain.  It would be nice to have a program where you could tell it to look at a particular window (either by title or class etc) once you have it positioned just like you want it, and then it report back all the windows parameters.  Then you can just plug the numbers etc into WinWarden or whatever program and be done with it.  Even better would be to build that functionality into those programs but I know thats another story.

Thanks!
David

When you install Autohotkey, a small program called "AutoIt3 Window Spy" gets installed along with it in the Start Menu. It does exactly what you've described.
