How can I identify in VBA if the current window is an item or a folder?

Let's say I've opened a mail item, which happens to be the 2nd item("Msg2") in Inbox.

Now I go back to the Inbox window but select the third item("Msg3").

ActiveInspector.CurrentItem would show data, but that's irrelevant to the current window item.

Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1) would work great.

Now I flip over to the open Msg2 mailitem so it is the current (focused) window.

Now the opposite is useful:

Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1) would be Msg3 - wrong, for current focus

ActiveInspector.CurrentItem would give the correct Msg2 .subject, .body, etc.

The problem is that there's both a current item and a current folder. How do I identify which is currently in focus?

I keep looking for something with "Current" in it; CurrentView seems to refer to the "type of view" rather than the contents of the current window.

I Googled hard before posting this, but may have ineptly failed; slap me if it's already covered in past posts.
 
Cool.

Sorry about the spam, it slips through the spam filters for some reason. I've been able to trap a lot of it using a different method, but a few still get in.
