I'm new to windows programming, and therefore want to know the difference between a parent window and an owner window?

The word Parent / Owner is most often the same .
When the window has the WS_CHILD style set it is the child window to the parent . So you can consider the ascendant window as the parent / owner window
There is a function Getparent() documentation of which can be found below .
