I do recognition system and I need to decide the location of objects read. So for me the important question of determining the location of the window of a third-party applications, and its size. Thanks!

Looks to me as if you may need to drop into a mex function. Use the MS Windows function EnumWindows with a callback; the callback will be called once for each top level MS Windows window. The callback would (somehow) figure out whether it was dealing with the desired window or not. Then you can call the MS Windows function GetWindowPlacement to determine the window screen position.
There is no MATLAB routine for this purpose.
There is a possibility that you might be able to find an existing ActiveX control that was able to return the information.
