In the last Fedora (26) distribution I notice a change in behavior of Gnome. When I double click in Files on a file that is already opened (for example a PDF), nothing happens. Of course I have to figure out that the reason is that the window was already open in the background.

However, I don't receive any notification or clue of what is going on.

This happens in other context, when relaunching a program, or opening text files, either from Files or from the command line in terminal window.

In Gnome Tweaks, there is an option called "Automatically Raise Windows", but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I have all the plugins switched off.
