  1. Hello, I don't like clicking every window just to make it the active window. I also often times want a window to be active but not stand on top of other windows. So, I threw together this script which I hope changes the proper windows settings without having to edit the registry. Seems to work for me on my Windows 7 x64 machine. Your mileage may vary. I honor no warranties. A more thorough explanation. Linux systems have a feature which will automatically focus the window that is currently under the mouse cursor. This setting can be enabled in Windows but used to require futzing around in the registry. This tool will enable the setting and also exposes two other important settings. ZOrder will determine whether or not the window which takes focus will come to the fore. Timeout will set how many milliseconds the mouse must hover over a window before it will take focus. ActiveWindowTrack Toy.zip dl: 110 Sincerely yours, Jaberwacky P.S., Latest AutoIt beta required for the source. An exe is included however. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Project now available on GitHub. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Latest update: Better code. No! I need to work with it some more. I messed something up. Latest Update: NOW better code. Latest Update: Improved GUI. Latest Update: The weirdest thing has happened. I was editing the file but when I would zip it, then it seemed like it wasn't creating a new zip file! Anyways, it should be right now. Latest Update: Better project structure. Latest Update: Fixed an important issue where the user could not revert back to previous settings. Again. Latest Update: Fixed again. Latest Update: Version 1.0! Made the GUI bigger in case it was too small for anybody with a disability. If that's ever a problem then let me know. Admin rights aren't actually required so those are gone. No need to restart your computer. Let me know of any problems! Latest update: ZOrder wasn't working. Does now. Latest Update: ZOrder wasn't working. Again. Silly error arising from the ancient copy/paste clan style of coding. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Recommended settings: Leave ZOrder unchecked and set Timeout to 100. Thanks to orbs and JohnOne!
