Does anyone else have this problem and is there a solution?

When I double click on a writer or calc file it opens behind 
the windows explorer window that I double clicked in.

I'll explain this another way in case that's not clear. Say 
I have a folder open on my screen with some .odt and .ods 
files in it. If I double click on a file to open it, it will 
open behind the folder that contains the file I clicked on.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Is there a solution?

If the LibreOffice window is not maximized, opening any associated file will
indeed cause LibreOffice to open behind the Explorer window.

There is a workaround: if you maximize the LibreOffice window and close the
window as maximized, the next time LibreOffice runs it will open in front
(top Z position).

This is not a solution, only a workaround...
