Retrieves the title of the specified window.

WinGetTitle, OutputVar [, WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText]



OutputVar The name of the variable in which to store the retrieved title.
WinTitle The title or partial title of the target window (the matching behavior is determined by SetTitleMatchMode). If this and the next 3 parameters are omitted, the Last Found Window will be used. If this is the letter A and the next 3 parameters are omitted, the active window will be used. To use a window class, specify ahk_class ExactClassName (shown by Window Spy). To use a process identifier (PID), specify ahk_pid %VarContainingPID%. To use a window group, specify ahk_group GroupName. To use a window's unique ID number, specify ahk_id %VarContainingID%. The search can be narrowed by specifying multiple criteria. For example: My File.txt ahk_class Notepad
WinText If present, this parameter must be a substring from a single text element of the target window (as revealed by the included Window Spy utility). Hidden text elements are detected if DetectHiddenText is ON.
ExcludeTitle Windows whose titles include this value will not be considered.
ExcludeText Windows whose text include this value will not be considered.



To discover the name of the window that the mouse is currently hovering over, use MouseGetPos.

Window titles and text are always case sensitive. Hidden windows are not detected unless DetectHiddenWindows has been turned on.
