Move active window to back

Recommended Posts


How do I push the active window to the back.  I have an application that causes many windows to appear and disappear (not my program).  At the end, there are several windows open and the one on top is not important at this stage so I would like to push it to the back.  My plan "B" is to sequentially activate all the other windows thereby causing the original top window to move to the back.  Rather tedious.  And depending on the results the windows in back are not always the same.
