I assume you are referring to the Windows version of Stata and that your
Variable window is undocked. If you dock it, you shouldn't have an issue. We
will look to address the issue concerning the undocked Variables window in a
future update. 

Also, clicking the title bar of an undocked Variable window seems to reset the
keyboard focus to the Command window. This solution still requires an extra 
mouse click but at least the mouse click is a shorter distance than directly 
clicking in the Command window.  

Hope these suggestions help,
