Windows pop up behind other windows
My desktop shortcuts open in new windows which are behind other windows on
the desktop. How can I make them open on top? (WIn XP, IE6)

Re: Windows pop up behind other windows
Hi,
See:
886217- New program window appears behind all other open windows on Windows
2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=886217

Note (in that article) that TweakUI can make the registry edit, if you don't
wish to do it manually.

The UNDO file at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm (line #66
right-side) makes the same registry edit.

Hope this helps,
Don
