Windows Event Queue


I'm moving into Win32 programming and have a question regarding the Windows event queue, now i understand what the event queue does.

My question is when i create an instance of my application does Windows create a queue for that instance or does the instance share the message queue with other windows applications and only taking the message from the Queue which is relevant to that instance?

Thanks for anyone who can clear this up.
