Windows taking focus annoyance!

  joelmb 13:52 24 Nov 2004

Hi. Has anyone got a way around this irritating habit windows xp/ explorer etc has of taking focus away from active windows i.e the application window you are curently working in goes to background and a new window takes preference. Examples are when loading a new webpage which takes the focus (particularly annoying if your typing into a messenger window only to look up and find you've not typed anything!)

Also happens when opening some large apps like photoshop which then take focus. and likewise sometimes when alert messages come up they sometimes take focus.

It's a niggle but highly annoying!! Anyone?

TweakUI has an option to control focus under General > Focus.
