Hi Guys,

I have noticed just recently when I open calculator with the short cut button on my Microsoft digital media pro keyboard it opens under any windows already open, Instead of coming to the front (on top).
Does anybody know how I can get it to open on top of all windows when I press the calc key on my keyboard.

Running win xp pro sp3

Thanks for your time

Looked at mine a little bit and couldn't find any setting to start on top. Only thing I found was to start in Normal Window.

To view that setting go to the Start button> Programs> Accessories. Right click on calculator and choose properties> shortcut.

Do you have the Microsoft drivers installed for the keyboard? Perhaps re-installing or if using the default drivers try removing the keyboard listing from Device Manager and rebooting.

It sounds like a matter of not being able to steal focus. Tweakui has an option to enable/disable that. It's in the 'General' group.
