Instead of using Process.MainWindowHandle (which only returns the "C:\DummyRepo - Log Messages - TortoiseGit" window) I guess I could iterate through all windows using the technique described in Winforms-How can I make MessageBox appear centered on MainForm? - Stack Overflow[^]. However, when I do so and log the window texts, I never find the strings "C:\DummyRepo - Log Messages - TortoiseGit" and "C:\DummyRepo - Switch/Checkout - TortoiseGit":
[DllImport("user32.dll", EntryPoint = "GetWindowText",
ExactSpelling = false, CharSet = CharSet.Auto, SetLastError = true)]
public static extern int GetWindowText(IntPtr hWnd, StringBuilder lpWindowText, int nMaxCount);

private bool checkWindow(IntPtr hWnd, IntPtr lp)
{
    // Checks if <hWnd> is a dialog
    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(260);
    GetClassName(hWnd, sb, sb.Capacity);

    // My added code to log all window texts
    StringBuilder strbTitle = new StringBuilder(255);
    int nLength = GetWindowText(hWnd, strbTitle, strbTitle.Capacity + 1);
    string strTitle = strbTitle.ToString();
    Debug.WriteLine("The window text is: " + strTitle);

    if (sb.ToString() != "#32770")
    {
        return true;
    }
    return true;    // My modified code to check all windows
The strings I find appear to be much more low-level, e.g "Form1", "MSCTFIME UI", "Default IME", etc. Does anybody know which function I should use instead to obtain the window headings, "C:\DummyRepo - Log Messages - TortoiseGit" and "C:\DummyRepo - Switch/Checkout - TortoiseGit"?
