Quick question – do you know any software or way of doing a live screenshot of a window and bring it to the foreground? It’d be like picture link in Excel...

My problem is that I am running various tasks in IE and Oracle, and they take forever but i have no way of seeing if they’re done without tabbing back into them all the time. I want something so that I can always see in the foreground the status bar/egg-timers thingy for them.

Thanks all

Sounds like good reason to badger the boss for a second monitor... ;-) –  Dan Puzey Sep 4 '12 at 15:09

Write an application that uses DWM thumbnails. –  Raymond Chen Sep 4 '12 at 16:14
    
Thanks Raymond - that looks useful. Unfortunately I'm no expert(!) and have no idea where i'd begin in terms of writing an application - what language, what software i'd need to build it, etc etc. –  alexei7 Sep 4 '12 at 16:18
