Opening a New Window..Settings

  zinnie 15:46 23 Aug 05

Hi everyone...can anyone help me ?
When I open a'new window', it always opens behind the 'existing window.'...which means that I have to minimise that window to get to the new one.....which is a pain!

Anyone any idea what settings I change to get the 'new window' to open in front of the 'existing window'.

in my computer, click on tools, folder options, general, tick the box saying open each folder in a new window, and apply.

Hi Joe happens in both Windows and the way ,when I said I tried your suggestion, what I meant is that I have tried the two options in 'Folder Options' ....'open in new window' and 'open in same window'.

The condition the I actually have is that the 'new window' initially opens in front...the goes behind the 'existing window'
