Thanks for the tip Vladimir.  

I usually have ~6 programs/windows running simultaneously, and my switching
includes bouncing back and forth between the text editor as well as the
Stata results window and the -do- file editor. Your tip works even when I
have multiple windows to switch.  

Nonetheless, I still would like to see my resized -do- editor "always on
top" in some instances, and hope StataCorp will consider making that
possible. 

Thanks again for the tip.

I use Alt+Tab to switch between windows. It's fast and the do-file
doesn't clog the main window.

I also created a small sound file and run it with -shell- command as
the last command in the do-file every time when I run Stata in the
background (or when the execution time is too long, so that I could do
something else).

Vladimir.
