This is seriously getting old. Does anyone know of a hack or program or ANYTHING for Windows 7 Home Premium that FORCES ALL programs to NOT EVER steal the window focus? I read somewhere that Microsoft says they can't do it and that the software devs have the right to steal the focus blah blah blah bullbleep and that they just ask them to not do it and they can't help it if they don't comply. I don't know the validity of that, but it's stupid either way.
I NEVER have had any program ever that NEEDED to steal the focus for any reason at all, but I have had several projects I was working on ruined or other screw ups when a program decided to steal the focus in the middle of me typing and then causing me to accidentally accept something I didn't wish to. Literally EVERY program I have refuses to minimise or start minimised. If I minimise it, and it's working, it'll bring itself back up on top for NO reason.
There used to be that registry change but it doesn't work at all (I don't think it has worked since XP...)
