Without awaiting the answer about what is tried to do: If no official way helps, there is always a dirty but "creative" approach. - Minimize the particular windows that you want to ignore - Hide their icons - Place you new window - Unhide the hidden icons - Reopen the minimized windows The process would perhaps have an optical effect that is not so good looking, but the "creative" approach could solve your problem if no other expert delivers a better solution :-)
