The question...certain actions result in a window with a value that a
userr needs, such as a reply for a temporary password. The user does
no "conversation" with the application, just receives information and
clicks a Close button.

It is a name for this type of screen that I'm looking for your

Programmers call that a "Message Box", or msgbox. You might name it a "Hint"
or "Info" box.
