Greetings, I have a head scratcher that I am hoping you all can help me with. I am using an Excel worksheet on a 42" touch screen monitor as an information screen in our lobby. The WS is set at full screen and automatically updates with information on a regular basis, and visitors can also touch control buttons to access additional WS information. In the lower right hand corner though I have placed a powerpoint presentation that simply runs a loop that gives viewers general information, pretty straight forward.

The issue that I am having however is that whenever someone touches the buttons to access the other stuff, the focus goes off of the powerpoint which is on "top" and go to excel. So I have to keep going in to the screen and bring the ppt show back to the front.

I did a bit of searching looking for a ppt macro to automatically put the show on top but did not have much luck. But I could achieve the same effect if the WS was in the back Is there a macro that would always have the excel worksheet in the back? Tried using the macro recorder and did not get any code recorded...

I appreciate any thoughts, thanks
