In MS Windows when you have opened a file explorer (equivalent of nautilus in Ubuntu) and another application opens on top of that (for example explorer in full screen mode and some application opened in windowed mode on top of that) and you click on the file/folder explorer that window gets focus.
So far this works exactly the same in the Ubuntu. However when you have the same situation and you click and drag on some file or folder, than the file explorer window does not get focus which allows you to drag and drop items from that folder into that application very quickly and easily. How can I achieve the same behavior in the Ubuntu?
In case it's not clear what I am asking for I will try to write it in other words.
When you have more than one window/applications stacked and you click or click and drag into one of them the window with the file icon you click gets focus and is moved to the top of the stacking order. As a result it covers other windows. I want to leave the stacking order as is when I click and drag some file or folder and only change the stacking order when I single click in that application window. It works exactly as I want it to when I drag and drop files from the desktop into some application.
I often work with multiple windows/applications opened at the same time and the inability to easily drag and drop files and folder from nautilus into my apps is very annoying to me and it slows me down more than I am willing to sacrifice.
