This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: When launching Photoshop it recurringly takes focus from another application/task (Windows)

I am a web developer.  I am constantly switching between Photoshop and other programs.  After switching off of Photoshop (usually using Cmd+Tab) to another program, Photoshop will automatically regain focus and pop back up on top of any other programs I've switched to.  This means I'm looking at or do something in Photoshop, Cmd+Tab to another program and start doing something, and 2 seconds or so later Photoshop pops back up and overtakes whatever else I am in the middle of doing.  *Extremely* annoying doesn't even begin to properly describe this.  

Why is it doing this and how can I make it stop?

Same issue.  VERY annoying. 

I run into a lot with launching Photoshop.  It takes forever to load so if I need it I will launch the app but then try to go do something else.   This is almost impossible though as Photoshop keeps popping itself into the foreground.  I have tied minimizing while it loads, etc. but nothing stops it.   So annoying!

What platforms are you on? Crisp330 - sounds like you're on Mac. What is Photoshop doing when you switch to another application? Is it launching? Batch processing?

Ryan and Алексей, are you on Windows?
