That's a typo: it's bringToTop(). Another function which could be used to do this is getWindowsHandle, along with C level programming to the Windows API. I haven't looked into this, so it's possible the UI library we use will get confused, but it should be possible to send Windows messages to those handles.

We do have longstanding bugs with the maximized/minimized status being overridden by various reset commands. I tracked down some of these once, but didn't get all of them (and did introduce some new bugs). I don't have the energy to fix the rest.
