Window State


Namespace: Wiki

This is change introduced with Windows 2000 on how it handles windows which require user attention. This can be reverted to how it used to be handled by making the following per user registry change.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"ForegroundLockTimeout"=dword:00000000

When the number is not zero it is how long (in Milliseconds) a application will be allowed to set itself as the foreground window after receive user input.
