     This Window Grouper demo project was made just to test a concept. What it does be default is, while running, monitor for any Internet Explorer windows that get opened. When one is detected it will group it into the window grouper interface and give the window a tab. The effect is that you will have only one window open (the Window Grouper) and that one window will contain a tabbed interface to all your open browsers. By right clicking on a tab you can bring up the Get Windows option to list all other running applications and pick one to also group into the interface (ie, Word, Excel...what ever). This code is far from perfect and was only made to test a concept to see if I wanted to go further. I thought I would share this to teach others how this can be done (this way but of course there are always better ways). Some code in here (mainly the EnumWindows stuff was given to me from another developer who got it from a online database which the person there said they got it from PSC so looks like this part of the code really gets around.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
