Things Pop Behind IE10

    General discussion

  • On the Aero Desktop, I found that under some conditions pop-up messages tended to pop up behind the current application.  The Taskbar button for these pop-ups flashes yellow, but under some conditions it's easy to miss this.

     

    I know this is a problem commonly complained-about with Windows 7.  I really, REALLY think Microsoft needs to "re-imagine" how applications will pop-up in Windows 8. 

     

    You probably can't create a single scheme that will please all the people all the time, so what *I* imagine is that you need to create some options - possibly application-specific (e.g., I might ALWAYS want things like application installers to pop in front of IE10, but never want applications to pop in front of Microsoft Word while I'm typing).
