Windows XP users! Are you fedup with applications stealing focus when they are launched? I am, especially as I had installed TweakUI for XP which has the option to “Prevent applications from stealing focus”.

And then I remember reading somewhere that, in a previous version of TweakUI, that option actually worked in reverse. In other words if you WANTED to stop applications stealing focus (popping up in front of what you are currently working on) then you had to UNCHECK that option.

And it works.

This post is brought to you by the letter A, the number 3249, and the random workings of my head.

P.S. You smug Mac users can just shut up.
