I'm using Media Player Classic Homecinema in a setup where it plays on one screen, while I'm trying to ALT-TAB between two applications on the other screen. Unfortunately, MPC keeps moving to the first place in ALT-TAB dialog although I didn't focus it.

This doesn't happen with other programs, and it also didn't happen with MPC until I switched to Windows 7. It also didn't happen in Vista.

I tried toggling MPC's "On Top" preference, but it had no effect on ALT-TAB order.

Anybody else experiencing this? It's utterly annoying.

Download Ultramon.

After you install this, all your windows will have +2 new icons like in this picture:

Use the second icon to switch the window between screens, this should do the trick because this app will record your windows position.

How will Ultramon help with the tab order? I have no problems moving windows between screens. – Domchi Nov 17 '09 at 12:02
