There are two ways to Spy the objects in QTP 
1) Thru file toolbar 
---In the File ToolBar click on the last toolbar button (an icon showing a person with hat). 
 
2) Tru Object repository Dialog 
---In Objectrepository dialog click on the button"object spy..." 
 
In the Object spy Dialog click on the button showing hand symbol. 
the pointer now changes in to a hand symbol and we have to point out the object to spy the state of the object 
 
if at all the object is not visible..or window is minimised then Hold the Ctrl button and activate the required window to and release the Ctrl button.

The Object spy is a handly feature which is used to shows the compleate information about the objects (Test objects and Runtime objects). The object information is like list of objects & Properties,description, syntax etc.  And also it works as guider to get the object information while using the Descriptive Program.
