Managed Windows API
I was looking to do some investigation about various windows handles from other applications from my C# application. I intially went down the P/Invoke path and doing all this stuff manually when I stumbled on this beauty of a project.

http://mwinapi.sourceforge.net/

I've never heard of it before, but a quick look though the docs shows some really nice built in functionality surrounding some common windows functions. In my particular case I was looking at the SystemWindow class which easily gave me the ability to dig into the windows that were available and even use linq to query them in order to minimize the list.

The next time you decide to do anything with windows functions, I'd give this library a look to see if it's got classes built in for you. No need to re-invent the wheel, unless of course you enjoy the longer journey.
