You may want to start by looking at the documentation, directly from the source (MSDN), MSDN Windows API List.

A cheat sheat? There are hundreds upon hundreds of API calls. Standard functions, COM functions, Macros, Messages, Notifications, kernel32, user32, gdi, apvapi, winsock etc...

Did you look at the above link jimblumberg gave you????? I would click on the the Windows link and go from there.

Did you search the Tutorial section? There are several that may help shed some light on Windows API programming. Here is one such tutorial: Intro to the Windows API

The link I posted is a list of ALL the Windows API functions, including the functions to make and use a "window".

The Windows API consists of several thousand functions that you can use to interact with the different parts of the Windows Operating System. Many "simple" Windows API programs consist of over a 1000 lines of code, calling dozens of the API functions.
