Hi All,

I am automating an application in windows using python.

After installation i need to check if the applications icon has appeared in
Taskbar or not. If yes i need to right click the application.

I had been using pywinauto for the same but could not get the job done till

I did the following,

hand=pywinauto.findwindows.find_windows(class='Shell_TrayWnd', title=u'')

When i use the handler, get the window and do a right click i am able to
click only in the taskbar and not icons. That maybe because i did not
recognise the icon yet.

Can you guide me how to do the same using pywinauto or pywin32?
