Annoying auto active window switch
Posted on 2009-02-13
Hi there guys,
I realize that this may be petty, but I find it ultra annoying. Often times when installing software or updates while trying to multitask and do other things, the installer changes my active window automatically. For instance, I am trying to install software in the background while trying to respond to an email. As I'm typing the installer automatically comes to the foreground and if I am not careful my key strokes from typing will select buttons on the installer window. Is there anyway to tweak XP to disable this and not bring a window to the foreground unless I explicitly click on it to do so. I hate that software tries to dictate for me what I should be doing and when. Your help is very much appreciated.
