    How to force the properties window open in the foreground!


    I've been fighting properties window since I installed window 10...
    I use this function a lot. The problem is the properties window opens in the background.
    So I have to minimize all the windows I have open to see the properties window.
    The weird thing is the properties window is the only one that does that, When I open a new
    window of anything it opens in the forground.
    Is there a way to force the properties window open in the forground...Thanks...

    Interesting, thanks for the post. I do not have a problem with windows opening up behind other windows and I just checked and

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ForegroundLockTimeout is set to 0 as the link describes. Sounds like that is supposed to be the default. Was yours a value other than 0?
