yes, you can by adding the following code, anywhere within the Gui section. preferably before Gui, Show.
[copy or print]
Gui, +AlwaysOnTop

From a GUI perspective, I'd say this little tool, which I call WhoseWindow, is perfect now.

But there is one deep problem that remains, which I suspect is not possible to fix: In three cases the answer to "whose window" is so generic as to have limited usefulness, explorer, rundll and svchost.

Can someone think of a way to get more specific information in any or all of these cases? (Probably to be displayed in the info window as an additional line.)

Thanks -- Vincent

Many thanks. I looked at the help file GUI entry for quite some time and couldn't find AlwaysOnTop. (Probably due to not knowing how to do a search within help text.)

What sort of specific information are you wanting?  Let us know and I'm sure we can come up with something or, at the very least, let you know that we can't.

Well in the case of rundll and scvhost, I want to know the name of the DLL file it is running. I don't know the answer with explorer.exe -- there are all sorts of services which spawn processes/windows under the explorer banner, but I don't know how to name them. Are they separate DLL files, just some subroutine within a humongous explore.exe or something else?

ProcessExplorer shows the following when holding the cursor over the process name:

rundll:    Rundll target (path and description)
svchost:  Services (and a list of service names)
explorer: Nothing special
