  • Question

  • I am a brand new Widoows 7 user.  When I am updating software, the popup windows that say things like "contunue" are behind the main window.  Is there some way to make them appear in front of the other windows?

  • Hello,

    You mentioned that the problem happans when you update software, I would like to know what's the software? Is it windows update? If it's a third-party software, it may have a option like "keep this program on top of other windows". If you checked this option, the windows will alway in front of the other windows.

  • As Thomas_77 suggested, you'd check if any option is configured for this application to display in front of other windows. For example, Windows Media Player has such a option.

    Addtionally, I would like to suggest you checking UAC. Try to set User Account Control Settings to different levels.

    Best Regards
