Task Object (Word)
Represents a single task running on the system. The Task object is a member of the Tasks collection. The Tasks collection includes all the applications that are currently running on the system.
Use Tasks(Index), where Index is the application name or the index number, to return a single Task object. The following example switches to and resizes the application window for the first visible task in the Tasks collection.
The following example restores the Calculator application window if Calculator is in the Tasks collection.
If Tasks.Exists("Calculator") = True Then Tasks("Calculator").WindowState = wdWindowStateNormal End If
Use Visual Basic's Shell function to run an executable program and add the program to the Tasks collection.
