It does to the back of the stack. I don't see the problem.

And, since I'm familiar with the regulations, if someone can walk into
an office and see the screen of the workstation used by the person who
processes HIPPA, FERPA, or PCI/CSS regulation information - you have a
regulatory violation issue. You need to rearrange the office and
probably purchase screen filters. This is not a DE issue.

Sorry, that is just nuts. Ctrl-Alt-L or Ctrl-Alt-Down + start working
with the new client. You can Unlock or Ctrl-Alt-Up to result work on
the previous client.

It is *not* *AN* answer at all.
