What operating system?

Default window focus behavior is highly OS and even window manager specific and is not an R issue.

Depending upon your OS and window manager, you may need to check the documentation and/or do a Google search on "window focus" for further information.

Another alternative, if you are on Windows, is to review Windows FAQ 5.4 "How do I move focus to a graphics window or the console?", but this is a programmatic approach and not a means to affect default behavior.
