Prevent window gaining focus from moving to current desktop?

Postby jbleau3 » 31.07.2014 21:41:08

Is there anyway to prevent a window that recently gained focus from moving to the current active desktop? An example of this happening is when you click on a link and it opens in your browser, if the browser was already open it will create a new tab and then give the window focus. If the browser window that got the new tab were on another desktop I would prefer for it to not move to my current desktop. There are a lot of small instances where this happens that ruins the flow of whatever I'm doing. :D

Cheers,
Joe

Let me clarify: the "link" clicked would not have originated from the browser it is opening in. It would come from an instant message client, an email, or any other application.

Hooray. This'll make Dexpot much more usable for me.

Thank you!
