5.14. activate windows which is laying ontop: COBRA+A

# Original: darüberliegendes Fenster aktivieren: COBRA+A

With COBRA+A you can activate an window that lays over the currently focussed window.

Sometimes a window pops up, stay partly over the currently focussed window but the new window does not get the keyboard focus.

Example of this behaviour is a reminder for an appointment of Microsoft Outlook. This window pops up, overlaps parts of the current window but is not focused.

In this situation COBRA still shows the old window but a sound will be played that shows that there is a window laying over the current one and parts of the window is overlapped by the new one.

By pressing COBRA+A you can activate the new window.

With COBRA+Shift+A you can activate that such windows will be activated whenever they are popping up automatically.

On the numeric Keypad you can activate an window that lays ontop with 0+1, 3 and with 0+1, Shift+3 you can select that such windows will be activated automatically.

These settings can also be done in COBRA-Menu, Extras, Preferences . They will than also be saved where settings changed by keyboard commands will not be saved.

To listn to the sound that will be played when COBRA detects a window ontop, please open COBRA menu, Extras, Sounds and select "window above" in the list of sounds.
