Chuck, I donít know if you are using Windows 7 but that is an ongoing problem for me in Win7.

Apparently Microsoft decided to deny applications the ability to "steal" focus from already open apps in Win7. Initially that sounds wonderful - I would have voted for that if they allowed voting! But now we are seeing the down side of this. In many instances it is beneficial for windows to take focus when opening but they can not do so in Win7. So oftentimes I have dialogs opening under my open windows and it is tough to even find them let alone get to them.

I've seen many users posting about this issue and there really doesnít seem to be any relief coming as yet. I keep hoping for a third-party tweak program that will allow me to override this feature when I wish.

Thank you.
