Display the hierarchy of windows (hidden or not) on your system along with a few options to modifiy them

This program is given to the public domain to do with as you please.
The only thing I ask is that you left the copyright notice and the 
static text label of on the main screen of the program.

Many years ago, while I was making an auto dialer to work with the 
AOL software for Windows, I had to spend many hours looking at their 
window and controls along with hidden controls.  To make my life easier
I through together this program which simplified the work of keeping 
track of which controls where on which windows.  

As far as I know the program is fully functional.  There are only two 
issues that I planned to fix but never got around to:

1)	When you right click on an item and select an action it applies that 
    action to the item which had been selected not the one right clicked on.

2)	When you resize the window only the tree control resizes (was all I 
    really cared about ;)

If you should happen to come up with extensions or fixes, I would enjoy 
receiving a copy.
