I am using a multiple-monitor setup. Every time I click on a window of an app, it will bring all windows of that app to the foreground, which hides some other apps on the other monitor. This is very annoying as I usually look at the other app at the same time.

EDIT: based on the comment, different apps may behave differently. I am wondering whether there is a window manager app to make all apps work this way.

  • Which specific application is this? – nohillside Dec 24 '17 at 6:55
  • @patrix no specific application, i want all apps behave this way – Justin Lin Dec 26 '17 at 1:16
  • Safari works like that already, so not all applications behave the same. – nohillside Dec 26 '17 at 7:11
  • @patrix Ahem, almost all apps behave like that? Do you mean when using Cmd+Tab or clicking the Dock-Icon that all windows come to front, perhaps? – LаngLаngС Feb 18 '18 at 1:46

    @patrix My bad formatting. Only the first sentence was really directed at you. AFAIK all native Cocoa apps should behave like we mean. I only can think of ported Java and Qt apps that do not, or some modal dialog like thing mixed in. – I still think the OP confuses app activation and single window raising. – LаngLаngС Feb 18 '18 at 12:56
