Input/ouput file dialog appears behind window/s

On windows, when using selectInput() or selectOutput() the file dialog popup is always behind the main sketch/app and also any other file browser windows you may have open.

From memory this problem has been around for some time :
GitHub issue here that did not get solved - >

On the old forum I thought there used to be some workaround suggestions that would bring the dialog to the front… but can’t seem to find them now.

Has anyone got any suggestions ?

Me neither! :disappointed: But if you wanna re-try your luck, here’s a tag link: :label:

also discussed here (with other stuff) without solution

@Chrisir Thanks and apologies for very slow reply.
Yep, the only solution I could see is to use JFileChooser direct, though not had time to test yet.
