focus after close

20 Jun 2018, 10:23

Often after closing a window focus goes to the taskbar
I'd like to create a script that
1) will close the current window
2) if focus went to the taskbar, move it to the currently top window
3) if there are only minimized windows left, restore one of them and move the focus to that one

my problem is with #2.
a) how do you get if focus is on the taskbar (or desktop)?
b) how can you get the currently top window (esp if it does not have focus)?

if somebody can please guide me in the right direction

Hey that worked, thanks.
I realized I can press alt+tab to move focus to the top window when the taskbar is active
my final script (took a bit of hacking to get the timing right for alt+tab):

Code: Select all

CapsLock & W::
  send !{F4}
  sleep 100
  IfWinActive, ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
    send !{tab down}
    sleep 100
    send {tab up}
