    This problem is so baisc that I'm embarrased I cannot find the solution on my own. I've recenlty upgraded my computer to WinXP form Win98SE.

    Now, whenever I have multiple open windows on the desktop, should I roll the mouse off of one window onto another fuly maximized window, that window immediately comes to the top, hiding all other (partially minimized) windows.

    If I drop to the taskbar to bring another window to the top (in a partially minimized size), that window immediately drops behind the full screen window when I roll my mouse off the taskbar, over the fully maximized window toward the partially minimized window.

    How can I prevent this?

    Sounds like it's a mouse setting. Check your mouse control panel
