I'm searching for a utility that can scan opened windows and show their properties, like Firebug in Firefox, but for Windows API.

I tried to search for it on the web, but no luck. Has anybody seen something like that?

Spy++ comes included with Visual Studio.

Spy++ (SPYXX.EXE) is a Win32-based utility that gives you a graphical view of the system’s processes, threads, windows, and window messages.

Spy++ has a toolbar and hyperlinks to help you work faster. It also provides a Refresh command to update the active view, a Window Finder Tool to make spying easier, and a Font dialog box to customize view windows. Additionally, Spy++ saves and restores user preferences.

Use Winspector as an alternative.
