Question - At work, on my Win 10 1903 64-bit machine, when I open a Word document, the PC shows me the doc full-size, but then the machine's "focus" goes somewhere else, so if I start typing, I discover I’m not in the doc that is right in front of me, but it’s not clear where I am or what stole the “focus” of the machine.

Can Sysinternals help us figure out what is stealing the machine’s “focus” when I open a Word doc?  If so, how, or please give us a link that explains.

I am still looking for an option to start procmon with an "on-the-fly" filter for a given executable name. Does this already exist? Will it ever come?
