Getting window object


This is my first day learning windows programming with particular objective in my mind. Can someone guide me where to start from and how can we accomplish below task:

I want to get handle of all windows object and read the text. for example task bar and start menu items, what are the options there. Is there is any open window (say notepad) what are the menu items and content etc etc.

Any help is appreciated.

Here's a place to help you get started.
And, of course, don't forget msdn for all windows programming references.
You may want to look up EnumWindows() It allows you to create a callback function and parse all top level windows via handle
