Cognos Controller client - Excel behavior in Citrix session

When user inside Cognos Controller click on Reports - Run, Microsoft Excel pop’s up and Excel is put in front of Cognos Controller window.

How do you change the the excel behavior, so the cognos conntroller application windows stays in the front ?


IBM Cognos Controller 10.4 on Windows 2012 R2 server with Office 365.

Hi All,
Do you know how to change the behavior.


I don’t think I’ve ever tried this type of thing so I don’t know if there is built-in functionality for it. That said, without any built-in functionality, my next stop would be to something like the free AutoHotKey tool or another Windows tool that could refocus on Controller after Excel appears.

Hope this helps you get the desired functionality!

Thank you for the advice.
