ADD Helper forces focus on the active window by darkening the desktop and all open windows except the currently selected window. This lets the users focus remain on the selected window instead of becoming distracted by other windows/applications that are also currently open.

ADD Helper still allows interaction with other open windows, it is a visual plugin only. If a different window is selected either manually or with a task switcher, ADD Helper will automatically give that window the focus.
