Fred Wolfe ( asked a followup question
about bringing a Do-file Editor forward:

Within a given Stata session, Ctrl-Tab may be used instead of Alt-Tab.
Alt-Tab switches the focus between all top-level windows open on the
system.  Ctrl-Tab switches the focus between only the windows within a
given Stata session.

If Fred has many windows open, this may still not be ideal.  Fred
could map a function key so that, when pressed, that function key
would execute a command which would always bring to the top the
Do-file Editor which was last on top.  This should be the Do-File
Editor with which Fred was most recently working.

If Fred defines the following (perhaps in his

   global F2 "window manage forward doeditor;"

Then pressing F2 will execute -window manage forward doeditor- which
will bring the topmost Do-file Editor in front of the main Stata
window and give it the focus.
