WinID is controls & windows identification utility that is both powerful and compact. It gives an easy way to retrieve information about MS Windows controls visually right off the screen. WinID resembles Spy++ from the MS Visual Studio toolset but it also incorporates lots of its own handy features. It will be good for debugging C/C++/MFC/.NET and Visual Basic applications by a person who knows (or plans to learn) the MS Windows OS - programmer, debugger/tester, beginner, as well as learning more about how your favorite programs are made.
(1)To use WinID all you have to do is to point mouse to control on the screen to get instant information about it;
