Automatically Bringing a Window of Interest to the Top

Sometimes when you show a lot of different windows on the screen you simply want the system to "automatically" know which one to raise to the top so that you can see it. You can do this by selecting "Automatically Pop Up Window Under Pointer" option under < File > < Options >. This enables a sophisticated algorithm that constantly looks at your mouse movement to decide if you are lingering over a window long enough to be paying attention to it. If so, this window comes to the top. You can use this technique to raise windows without pressing the mouse button at all!

If you are simply sliding the mouse from one window to another while passing over "unimportant:" intermediate windows, the in between windows do not pop up. Of course, many times you don't want this automatic window raising, which is the reason the system comes with this option turned off.
