You can use the very useful appswitch Python extension module to switch an application in background and bring it to foreground in focus.


You need to download required versions of appswitch module from the given two links:


# import module
import appswitch
# push application to BACKGROUND
print appswitch.switch_to_bg(u"Menu")
# bring application to FOREGROUND
print appswitch.switch_to_fg(u"Menu")
