Windows sucks.

Sign in to follow this  


Okay, I think it's about time someone answers this question for me. From time to time under XP, I get two windows locked in their "focus levels". I can focus the other window but it doesn't come to the front. This still happens if I minimize and maximize the windows, and it's really irritating. Windows-m doesn't help at all.

It seems to happen with uTorrent a lot, but I've gotten it with Firefox before after exiting a full-screen program. Opening another window sometimes helps, but more often than not I'm stuck with this until I close both windows and open them again (which is a pain).

Is there some kind of Windows key combination that resets the focus and layers so I can get back to work?
