LiveCode isn’t the only app to leave windows visible, so I’ve become used to typing Cmd-Alt-H if I switch to another app or the finder and there’s something in the way that doesn’t belong to the app in front.
Cmd-Alt-H is a system wide short-cut to “Hide Others”, so it should work in most apps and normally shows under the app menu.

But if you click on the Finder icon in the dock, or use Cmd-tab to cycle to another app, the toolbar is moved behind the frontmost app. Since I use Cmd-tab a lot, I've hardly noticed.

If I'm in the Finder the top LC toolbar obscures anything behind it on the desktop and I am unable to access folders and files I have there. Maybe I haven't explained myself well. Here's a screenshot of the top of my screen while LC is launched but Finder is at the front:

I shouldn't have to quit LC to get to folders at the top of my screen. For now I've set my "View" to "Toolbar Text" only (no icons) - that narrows it enough that I can access stuff at the top of my screen.
