Because Windows stops sending keystrokes and mouse clicks to a program when it is minimized or not focused, the Text Type, Control Key Down/Up and Mouse Left Button Down/Up do not get sent to a minimized or unfocused window. If your application supports Window Controls, you may be able to use the Window Control commands to use Text Type Control Key Down/Up and Mouse Single Left Click on Control.

Minimized or not focused = not the 'top most window'.

Windows controls what is sent to which open window. Windows will only send keystrokes, (or mouse clicks) to the top most window. Therefore Macro Express can only send keystrokes, (or mouse clicks) to the top most window.

 

Macro Express has commands to change which window is top most. So it can set focus to the other window, send keystrokes or mouse clicks, and then set focus back to the first window.
