How do I get a handle to the Start button in Windows 10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In order to get the start button handle, i have used :

    Hwnd m_hWindowsTaskBar = ::FindWindow ("Shell_TrayWnd",NULL); //get handle of shell tray

    HWND hWndSB = NULL;

    hWndSB = ::FindWindowEx (m_hWindowsTaskBar, NULL,"START","START"); // get HWND of start button

    Even though I am getting the proper handle (crossed verified the same using spyxx.exe), yet the start window is not coming up which is expected. 

    Please let me know what am I missing?
