Extend SAMMI's functionality with our community made extensions.

Active Window

Developed by:
Rating | Utilities | views


Simple extension to get your current active window and its state (full screen vs. windowed) as a variable in SAMMI.

For example, it can be useful for when you want to switch your scenes depending on what game you’re playing and whether it’s in full screen mode or not.

Important Note

  • Fullscreen state is only detected for apps running on your main monitor/desktop.
  • The extension uses AutoIt script to work. You do not need to install any dependencies as it is already all compiled.
  • It has been tested only on Windows 10.

Special thanks goes to MisterK for migrating the extension to SAMMI.

Please do NOT rename or move this folder outside of Receiver/Ext folder and do NOT rename of move any of the files within this folder. They’re all important for the extension to correctly function.

Folder Contents
LBActiveWindow.exe - compiled script which scans for active window process name and size
LBActiveWindow.a3x - compiled script but without the final exe. Must be run with AutoIt installed. Might work better than the .exe version if your antivirus is too aggressive.
LBActiveWindow.au3 - uncompiled script. Can be edited in AutoIt.
activewindow.txt - the script saves the active window process name and size into this txt file
LBActiveWindowKill.bat - batch file to kill the currently running script
LBActiveWindowKill.vbs - visual basic script to run the batch file silently

Note: Your antivirus may not like the .exe file included in the zip, which is a compiled AutoIt script to detect your active window.
You can give it a permission to execute it or use its non exe version, just follow the instructions in the blue button in your premade deck!
