Window Detective is a programmer's tool used to "spy" on an application's windows and allows you to view and even modify some of it's properties.


If you've got any question or suggestion or have any bugs to report, you can create a ticket.


Window Detective is translated in a number of different languages (English being the original language). If you want to translate it in your own language, see here for instructions.

Source Code

The source code for each version of Window Detective can be downloaded from SourceForge at the same place as the installers.

It is packaged as a zip file which contains the source code as well as the pre-compiled binaries and data required to run the program. No installation is required to run, although settings will not be saved unless the registry key exists in HKCU\Software.

To build the source code, you will need Microsoft Visual Studio and the Qt framework. You can download Qt here.
I work with Visual Studio 2010 and Qt 5.1.0, but it should be possible to build with other versions.
