I have recently stared using windows 8 with chrome in windows 8 mode. When I download a document (for example .xlsx or .docx) the file is shown in the bottom of the screen. So far it works as expected.

However, when I click on the file it is opened in the background, and I need to switch to it before I can use it.

As I typically want to use files direcly when I open them, I hope there is a way to make sure the file immediately is on screen when I open it. (Like it does with chrome in desktop mode)
