A. Is it possible to configure windows so when you move the mouse over a window it will come into focus:
- Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
- Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse
- If the value ActiveWindowTracking exists goto step 4, otherwise select New - DWORD Value from edit value and enter a name of ActiveWindowTracking (watch the case).
- Double click on the value and set to 1. Click OK
- Close the registry editor
- Logoff and on for the change to take effect
An undesirable side-effect of this is when turning on X-Windows-style auto-raise, Netscape Navigator button-based menus (ie, for bookmarks, etc) do not work at all because auto-raise causes somewhat of an infinite loop between the browser and its menus (which are implemented as windows).
