Multiple Windows Open At Once

I need help!!! I"m having a hard time finding where I turn off the feature that makes the window that my mouse is resting on come to the front. Sometimes when I type I just need to move my mouse out of the way and if it touches another window it makes that other window I have open pop up. And, when I'm using my mouse to navigate on the screen it will make each window come up without clicking on it. How do I make it stop???

Hello Slynn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I believe this may be what you have enabled. You can uncheck the Activate a window by hovering over it with the mouse box in OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to turn this off.

Mouse Hover Makes Window Active - Enable

Hope this helps,
Shawn
