Window (MSAA UI Element Reference)
Microsoft Active Accessibility creates a generic window object as a container for another object. Client developers do not convey the information from window objects to end users because these objects do not contain useful information.
If a server application creates a custom control, Microsoft Active Accessibility creates a window object that contains the custom control, but the server creates an accessible object to provide information about the contents of the control. The system generates object-level events for the window object, but the server must send events for the accessible object that provides information about the control.
The window object supports the following IAccessible methods:

|get_accKeyboardShortcut||The window object itself does not have a KeyboardShortcut property. The KeyboardShortcut property for the child object is retrieved through the window object.|
|get_accName||The Name property of the window object is the same as the child object.|
