In Windows 7, I was able to use the available screen personalization options to create the X11 unix effect, that is, to change keyboard focus window using the mouse pointer, and to raise the window to the foreground with a mouse click. (This is great for inputting data in one window while viewing the data to be entered in another window.) I haven't been able to find these settings for Windows 8. Can anyone help?


This is my first time posting to this forum, which came highly recommended by a friend.


Thank you for your help,

Do you remember what settings you used in Windows 7 to achieve this?
