    Is there a way to change the setting in IE so that it doesn't bring itself to the front? I'll click on something on a web page and then go to another program while it's loading, and IE will keep popping to the front while I'm trying to work on other things.

    Try this:

    1. Download tweakui
    2. Open program
    3. General
    4. Focus
    5. Check "prevent applicatoins from stealing focus"

    I think that should do it.

    My version doesn't seem to have that, or I can't find it. I've got the latest version.

    You can remove focus by going to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Internet options->Advanced. Look through all the options, one of them asks if you want autofocus, if you don't, make sure that box is not checked.

    What version of Tweak are you using? I am using ""

    If not get it here: Its on the right had side of the webpage...

    Tweak UI
    564 KB file
    3 min @ 28.8 Kbps

    That is where I got my Tweakui from.


    *Earlier I said General then Focus....Just go to focus. Its by its self not within General.
