    Hi, I need help on this one: when I open the Windows Explorer (Windows 2000) and double-click on a document to open it, the program (e.g. MS Excel when I double-clicked on an Excel document) starts in the background, Windows Explorer stays automatically in front. Did anyone ever hear of this? How can I stop this and make the program with the selected file type start automatically in front?

    Any suggestions welcomed! Thanks.
