    how to windows in Foreground , a simple way?!


    I have read complicated ways to get windows in foreground. The easy answer is to set windows to open one at a time. Here's how: open File Explorer, go to view and open options. When 'options' opens click on Change folders. When the dialog box opens, click General and then click on the first item: "open windows in its own folder". It helped me, I hope it meets you need.

    :)

    On-Screen Keyboard bug changes foreground window

    This On-Screen Keyboard bug changes the current foreground window.

    Steps:

    1. Open Edge and notepad and maximize them (never minimize them)
    2. Select notepad by clicking on it in taskbar (it's now on top)
    3. Open the On-Screen Keyboard (in Windows Ease of access)
    4. Type a few characters into notepad with the On-Screen Keyboard
    5. Minimize the On-Screen Keyboard
    6. Select Edge by clicking on it in taskbar (it's now on top)
    7. Restore the On-Screen Keyboard by clicking on it in taskbar and use it to type into Edge
    Result:

    Notepad is now on top

    Expected result:

    Edge remains on top i.e. the On-Screen Keyboard maintains the current foreground window in which you intended to type.

    History:

    This superuser Q&A contains links to this bug being reported in windows 8, windows 7 and claims it goes back 17 years to Windows XP.

    Workarounds:

    Kill the On-Screen Keyboard every time instead of minimizing it. The bug occurs because the On-Screen Keyboard fails to keep track of the current foreground window while minimized.

    Patch out the SetForegroundWindow call from the On-Screen Keyboard binary as described in the superuser link above.

    Wait 17 more years for Microsoft to fix it.

    Tell user to stop being disabled.

    how to windows in Foreground , a simple way?!

    An app is suddenly running in background instead of foreground as it should

    I run Windows 10.

    When I tried to start an app it suddenly started to run in the background instead of foreground as it should, as seen in the Taskmanager.

    It is an "external" app and is thus not listed in the Settings-privacy- background apps list

    I want to force it back to run as foreground app again.

    Is it possible?
