When I copy or move files in Windows 8, the copy/move dialog is sometimes launched in the foreground and sometimes in the background of other open file explorer windows.
I have found out that:
- The dialog is launched in the foreground when it was in the foreground at the end of last copy/move operation.
- The dialog is launched in the background when it was in the background at the end of last copy/move operation.
So for example, if I copy/move a file somewhere and watch the entire copy/move process, thus let the dialog in the foreground till the end, the dialog of a next copy/move operation is also launched in the foreground. Otherwise, when I copy/move a file somewhere and do not watch the process till the end, thus switch focus to another file explorer window, the dialog of a next copy/move operation is then launched in the background. I have tested this also in safe mode but the same thing happened.
I find it very annoying so I ask - Is there any option in Windows 8 to force copy/move dialog to be always launched in the foreground?
