Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

[winapi] - 2503 questions
[windows-api] - 30 questions
[win32api] - 2 questions (Completed Mar 5/2010)
[win32-api] - 62 questions (Completed Mar 5/2010 while waiting for Chinese food to arrive lol)
[window] AND [api] - 3 questions ( "" )
[windows] AND [api] - 114 questions (likely needs hand-sorting) (Completed Mar 20/2010)

[win32] - 835 questions

I'm going to leave the [win32] tag for now. It should probably have its own request question anyway. In finishing this up, I only removed that tag from only a couple of questions, so that may indicate it was used instead of [winapi].

Does win32 always refer to the same thing? It does to me. – Brian R. Bondy Feb 22 '10 at 16:49
@Brian: Good point. Edited. Also added [win32-api] to the list. – Jon Seigel Feb 22 '10 at 17:05

I have completed this request by hand, including another 5 questions with [windows-api] that popped up since I last went through these.

+1 for while waiting for Chinese food to arrive lol – Lightness Races in Orbit Mar 1 '12 at 19:07

I'm not sure what to do with the [win32] tag.

I think most of the questions tagged with it refer to Win32-API, but it is also used in situations where it doesn't refer to that. There are 165 questions tagged with [windows] AND [win32], which is few enough to skim through and manually re-tag where necessary. That would at least help a little in the cleanup process, though it probably won't catch everything.
