Thanks, Linda, but unfortunately this is not the issue. This is reg. setting is already set, and it's ONLY Fireworks that does this. Before i installed Windows 7, it was always just Fireworks that INSISTS upon stealing focus as it opened, and this Reg setting seemed to fix it, but now this doesn't seem to work in Win7.
what is it about FW that causes this, when other apps of such 'stature' don't...?
thanks Linda and to anyone else who has some insight into this annoying problem.
Are you using CS5 or CS4?
this has been an issue with FW for a while, though, for the past few years, anyway...
The reason I'm asking is that issues of stealing focus were brought up during the CS5 beta. I can't recall the details, but I know some things were addressed.
Might be worth checking out the trial.
