    When I click 'Render', window switches to composition and can't be changed.


      Question: Does anyone know why after effects is switching to the composition in question when I hit render?


      Details: When I'm ready to render, I add a project to the render queue, leave the default render settings, and click render. After effects automatically switches to the composition that is being rendered, and the playhead starts scrolling across in line with the rendering. I can not switch back to the render queue window and thus I can no longer view or adjust the render until it is complete. I have found that I can cancel a render by hitting escape. But I wish to stay in the render queue window whilst it is rendering to know the ETA and other details.
