i have windows xp sp2 that i just reinstalled and every time i open a new folder or start to install something the new window opens under any other window that is on my screen. there has to be something i missed but i checked in folder options and various things in control panel and still have found nothing to change this annoying habit. somebody please show me that i have missed something really stupid and i will be forever grateful.

thanks

just any window that i open be it a folder or installing new hardware, basically the focus stays with whatever window i was using not the one i am currently opening...does that make sense? lol

imagine installing new hardware and after installing the drivers for the new hardware there is a popup that asks you to register your new hardware,.....but its under the install screen and you dont know that its there so it seems like your computer is locked up but in reality you just have to click on the new popup. annoying as [bleep]! i hope this helps.

thanks
