This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Stealing focus on launch

When Lightroom Classic is starting up, during the process, the application focuses itself at least 3 times. What happens due to this?
- The user clicks the application shortcut
- During the lengthily startup, the user may want to continue using another open application, (for example Bridge, Explorer, etc.)
- Lightroom aggressively focuses and maximizes itself. Even if the user clicks an focuses another application, Lightroom takes the focus back.

Please remove the focusing/maximizing code snippets from Lightroom Classic. Please study another application: when starting up, those doesn't force the focus.
