tasklist help on filter /FI


OS: Win 7 64bits Family Premium

First, I wish to list everything which window title is not N/A

I tried
tasklist /v /FI "WINDOWTITLE ne N/A"
HTML Code:
tasklist /v /FI "WINDOWTITLE ne 'N/A'"
But didn't work.

Second, is there a possiblity to tell which window is in focus?

Third is theresome wildcards possibility?
tasklist /v /FI "WINDOWTITLE eq N*"

Not sure what you're asking, but:

/FI filter Displays a set of tasks that match a given criteria specified by the filter.

Sorry though it was clear.

1/ I want to match any WINDOWTITLE which is not equal to N/A, or maybe N/A is just the display output of some special terminal character?
2/ Is there an indicator/flag to signal which window is in focus?
3/ Is theresome wildcards possibility, e.g, matching anything as chr* to match chrome, chromium, etc.
