    Document Focus Shifts (WinXP SP-2)

    Edit:

    Disregard this as I think I have solved same.

    Thanks,

    ***************************
    I'm in th process of re-installing everything on new hard drives. I seem though to either have set (or not so) some item that is driving me crazy:

    If I have a couple windows open, one being Explorer, and in the Explorer window I right-click a file, and choose "Edit", th appropriate program comes up with the document in the window. Fine.

    But if I don't "click" on that newly opened editing window, the window goes to the background and Explorer takes back focus.

    I checked (via TweakUI) to see if some setting is "wrong", but I don't see one.

    What could this (most likely) be, and how to fix it?

    Joe:

    I found that the issue was not hardware related, but rather the file manager I was using, Total Commander, version 7 beta 3. Once I reverted back to the beta 2 version, the issue was gone.

    Funny, as I've used this particular version for about 2 weeks with no peoblems, but then, oh well, I should have suspected, as it is a beta.
