InDesign steals focus in Windows 10

Whenever InDesign launches or performs a task such as PDF export, if the user switches to another application, InDesign will steal the focus back.

This annoyance has been around for quite some time as outlined in this thread: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2001514

We’ll send you updates on this idea

On Windows 10, the focus stealing does not happen with InDesign CC 2018. Same with Illustrator CC 2018.
However, as some users have noted, focus stealing happens with Photoshop CC 2018.

We’d like to know if you are still experiencing this issue with InDesign.

Thanks,
Adobe InDesign team
