Enable X Windows Style Mouse
If you have ever worked on a Unix workstation then you will probably remember being able to bring a window to the front just by placing your mouse pointer on it. You can enable a similar feature in NT editing a value in the registry, follow the following steps:
  1. Backup your Registry
  2. run RegEdit
  3. Locate the following Registry Key
    hkey_current_user/Control Panel/Mouse/ActiveWindowTracking
  4. Change the value to 1
  5. Accept the changes and close RegEdit

Changing this value will set the focus to whatever window the mouse is pointing to, although it won't bring it up to the top of the stack. You'll need to log off and back on before this change will take effect.
