Bring a group of Windows to the Foreground

Hello,

Is there a way to bring a set of windows, together, to the foreground at once?

Ty, very much.

You could do this with a Scripted Function. If you can reply with the list of EXE names for the programs you want brought to the front, I can write up a sample Scripted Function for you :)

Thanks!

Thank you, I apreciate that!

It's "evernote.exe" and the path would be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\".

Is it possible to bring all openned windows of the group at once? Or would you need the individual name of each window?

Cheers

No need for each window name. I've written up a script that should do the trick.

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Functions tab, click the "Download Scripted" button
  • Double-click the script named "Bring all Evernote windows to the front"
  • Give it a key combination and click OK
  • Optionally, select it, click "Toggle TitleBar Button" (to add it to the caption bar of every application)
  • Click Apply and test it out

Hope that helps!

Thank you, very much! I've Been testing this weekend and it works very well.

Could make me one improvment, though?

As for now, it brings to the foreground a single window at time. Is possible to loop it up to make the whole stack to the forefront?

If not, it's good as it is. Ty once again!

Unfortunately there wouldn't be a way to bring them all to the front at the same time, no. The script has to pass focus to each one, one at a time.

Thanks!
