In the layer window when you  click on a layer the whole layer bar gets a blue 
background and that is the active layer. To isolate that layer click the eye 
icon for each other layer. That makes the other layers invisible.  If the eye 
icon is visible then that layer is visible and if it isn't then the layer is 

Just remember, the layer with the blue background is the active layer and the 
layer(s) with the eye icon are visible.  That is obvious to experienced users 
but not necessarily obvious to those coming to Gimp from other software.
