Description

Activates the window.
This function does more than just show. if the window has been minimized, it will restore it. Also the window is moved to front and made the current window for keyboard input.

Sadly windows limits which windows can go to front, so some windows may not come to front unless they are clicked on.

As activation can be asynchronously, the window may activate later, e.g. in a script pause or at the end of the script.
