Window Inspector is a freeware that lets you view & inspect window properties, window class, text, etc, and also observe the changes in them in real-time. You can go through all the properties related to a particular window and also observe real-time changes in them. Window Inspector may seem a bit complicated and it may not be as useful to normal users, but it will make a great tool for programmers or geeks to have it in their collection.
The UI of Window Inspector is pretty straightforward and tidy, but the properties and their corresponding values may seem a bit daunting. To view properties of an active window, just point the mouse’s cursor to the desired window. You can lock upon a particular window so that the mouse movements do not effect functioning of the application. The right pane will display all the relevant properties and data. Some of the properties displayed are:

You can even extract the data out of the application and save it to an HTML file for record and further reference. Moreover, you can freeze the timer so that the data does not update and you can record or save the data. With Window Inspector, you can browse through the parent/child or owner/child window hierarchies per-process and see all the windows associated with an application. Also you can double-click any window in the tree-view to see its detailed properties, icons and more.
