That's exactly what I don't want to do. I normally have several
'projects' in the works, using several pgms each. If I kill one of the
important processes in a 'project', I may have to start over or do
some recovery to get back to where I was.

If I can ID the exact window, then it tells me which project needs to
be finished so I can then close the memory hogs *after* I am finished
with the project. 

The window ID is the key...
