    Very often when I have focus on an app that has more than one window open, and then change focus to another app (always using the task bar) another window for the first app appears over the one I had selected. This has caused a lot of cussing lately, because I've been doing these copy and paste operations, wherein I paste to the wrong window, without realizing it, which does real damage. What can I do about that?
