Window Activation

  • 1.  Window Activation

    I am currently running MapInfo 17.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 and I am having trouble activating windows that are not 'Active'.  If I have a map open and a matching browser table window open I cannot switch back and forth between the two without having to click the window I want to activate two times.  The same goes for the Info tool and the MapBasic window.  Past iterations of MapInfo have allowed me to bring any window to the forefront for use with one click of the mouse.  Is this a known problem or something that I can remedy in the settings?

    ​Hi Chris
    I'm not following you with this.
    Do you have your windows Tabbed or Floating?
    You just click once on the tab at the top of the window to activate.
    The active window will have a yellow diamond on the tab to help identify it.

    Or are you working in the Layout. You need to double-click to make a map or browser window active
    in that environment.
