    Method to switch focus to front window

    Hi all,

    Whenever I have two seperate apps in the windows 7 taskbar and decide to close one of them, the focus doesnt automatically switch to the one remaining window, instead I have to physically click on it to bring the focus to it. Its really annoying and was wondering if there was a workaround?

    Interesting. Does the problem occur even after a restart?

    There may be a program grabbing the attention away.

    When did this start happening?

    Have you changed anything in your system lately?

    Well I've just upgraded to Windows 7 a few days ago and everything was fine then. It seems to have been since the windows updates have been installed that its been doing it.

    Just out of curiosity, how did you close the one app?

    Was the focus on the remaining app before closing the other one?

    There is a good discussion here, how do I get the top-most window to always grab focus?

    Though not solved it may provide some insight.
