Active window and mouse location

Apologies if I'm misunderstanding the problem or if someone already
suggested this, but won't the stack come to the front if you just say
"go to stack tMyStack" ? Seems to me that would make it the topStack,
which is apparently what you want (as I read it).
Or if the stack is a mainStack, you could say "launch document
tMyStackFilepath" and the same thing would happen.
Another simple two-line approach:
push current card of stack tTheOneBehind
The push/pop approach should work in any LC version. (I'm working in LC 9)

I will, however, keep this in mind for other purposes.
