Well, the basic command to execute is:
choose browse tool
But as to how you execute it, you have a couple of choices:
1) Make a menu item that changes the tool back to browse.
2) Make a palette with a button that changes tools (palettes always get
the browse tool even if the toplevel stack has another tool, so you can
click on palette buttons).
3) On your toplevel window create a button that will pick the browse
tool and set its "cantSelect" property to true (this means that it
can't be selected with the pointer tool and so that button is
clickable). If you do this and you need to affect the button later, you
turn off the cantSelect property of the object by script in the message
box and then you'll be able to work with it normally.
