for some years now, whenever I type "window, [number]" in IDLDE, the window it opens is (a) minimized, and (b) at the very very end of the Alt+Tab sequence. This essentially makes it terribly inconvenient to switch to from the keyboard.
Is there any setting that can help? Is there a workaround?
My workflow often requires me to run a program, click somewhere on an opened window, then flicker between window 1 and window 2 (for example), then go back to IDLDE, then run a program, click in a window, flicker between two windows... I wrote these codes ages ago when IDL worked with Alt+Tab as it should. (The newly open windows were in the beginning of the sequence of course.) Alt+Shift+Tab is a lot less convenient to press. And, frankly, it's not always in the end of the sequence either, so whether I'm pressing Alt+Tab or Alt+Shift+Tab, it takes many presses.
I took to opening a new, virtual desktop for these tasks, but frankly this seems like a cludge.
Is there any way that this can be fixed?
