Make sandboxed program believe it is in focus/active window.

I am not sure if there is a way to do this already or not but it'd be great if Sandboxie could make the sandboxed program believe it was in focus.

I too would fancy such an ini setting for special cases, e.g. pinning and monitoring a window that loses its display with its focus.

And I might be presuming too much here, if, like it sounded to me, you want to multi-box? It is conceivable to make an application believe its window(s) be active, never inactive (probably only a matter of dropping some WMs), (with say a custom dll) but that is not enough... Infer from my next paragraph that keyboard input for example, will not be propagated.

Multi-boxing (and Sandboxie): It wouldn't be too difficult to duplicate input messages, send (synchronous) or post (async), in a spread across chosen (Sandboxes and their) top-level windows. But I'm sure there are already (compatible) solutions available.
