    How make last window open not go to bottom of inactive windows


    How do I make windows 10 not push last window open not go to bottom of inactive windows?

    I have an application that it's icon is in a folder on the desktop. If I open the folder and open the application it stays on top. Then if I choose an option in the application that opens a result file in Notepad, the application main window is now hidden beneath the File Explorer window, which means I then have to click the application icon again to see it.

    It seems that it used to didn't be this way on my system. Seems like I could choose the option in the application (which opens the results in Notepad), then just close Notepad, and I would then see my application as the active window on top.

    Thanks for any replies.

    Pin a shortcut of the application to the Start Menu so that Explorer is not involved when opening the program.
