How to keep new applications on top within windows 8.1 desktop

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:3

In previous Window versions when one opened applications such as word, excel or browser or snipping tool these applications stayed on top.  
However, in windows 8.1 now when ne application is openned, one needs to minize other applications before starting to use it.  This is very non productive use of time and prevents swtiching between dpendent application, open version of documents, and
images.
Please provide suggestions how to configure the system to enable latest application on top.
Thank you.
Hi,
Based on my knowledge, you can keep new applications on top of all other windows on your desktop, even while you're working in other programs.
I would like to suggest you restoring healthy  by using this command: dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth first.
Meanwhile, please ask on the following forum. This is where the Windows 8.1 experts answer questions.
