Office and other apps open behind Files

See original GitHub issue

Explain the bug When users right click on a Microsoft Word Files, ending in .docx extension, it will show up a bunch of options such as Edit, New, Print, Open, etc. When I try to click on Edit Button, it opens the document behind the app.

To reproduce

  1. Right click on a Microsoft Word Document (.docx)
  2. Click on Edit Option
  3. See the error

Expected behavior Documents which are opened via Edit Command must be previewed in front the app.
