How to keep IE from switching focus?

By LittleCritter ·
When I'm using MS Internet Explorer and have multiple windows open, the app switches focus from the page I'm looking at to another page whenever that page or an element on that page finishes loading. This is very annoying. Does anyone know a way to keep IE from switching focus to another window? There's nothing in the Internet Options that addresses this. Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge, this is a behaviour by design, and it can't be overruled.

I'm using version 5.00.2919.6307 of Microsoft Internet Explorer. While IE is open, select the Help Menu > About Internet Explorer. If your version is more early then this, I would only recommend an update to IE.

I don't have focusing problems. I'm running in a Windows NT 4.0 Workstation Environment.

Hope this helps.
