Request: auto window activation after ALT-TAB in full-window

Toni,
can you add a Misc option to automatically click/re-activate WinUAE full-screen window after ALT+TAB (because you needed to switch to Windows desktop)?
My current Misc options are:

and when I switch back to WinUAE Workbench with ALT+TAB I see Windows mouse pointer and have to click into WinUAE full-window to continue… Wondered if this extra step could be by-passed to smoothly switch between Windows/Amiga

I think by default that WinUAE allows you to go from WinUAE (fullscreen) to Windows immediately with the middle mouse button/scrollwheel. You can then click on the WinUAE icon on the taskbar to go straight back to WinUAE (fullscreen). I tried it just now, it's much quicker than Alt-Tab.

MMB is just to untrap at default (I don't use it). Clicking on taskbar icon it won't resume emu in my case (still paused with floating Windows pointer) and there's the further step to click on WinUAE full-window to actually resume it…

Just tested: in full-window won't resume emu. It works as I expected in fullscreen only.

It is by design to not activate by default in full-window.

Full-window is more closer to windowed mode than fullscreen. It is possible to have other windows on top of winuae window (which is impossible in real full-screen). Automatic activation would be annoying in some situations. Non-automatic in fullscreen also would be really annoying

Option can be added but not in 4.0.1. 4.0.1 won't have any GUI changes.
