Question Minor Annoying Problem [; ; win2KPro]

sponsored links
Just a small problem I am experiencing with Win 2K that is getting a bit annoying. When I choose "Open With ..." and need to scroll the program list, by default the list pops up in the background. I would like it to pop up in the foreground (a.k.a. "always in front"). Is there a registry tweak or something else I can do to fix this little annoyance? TIA

You might want to check and see if any of the apps you're running has the "Always on Top" option set. That might cause everything else to appear in the background....

hehe true m8. actually though, the above problem only occurs with the "Open with ...." selection menu. If I select "Open with Notepad" for instance, Notepad opens in front. Obviously this is something I can live with, just was hoing for a fix.
