Set Focus to an open application

(OP)
Hi,

I have this code to run and application (notepad for example) and if it is already running I want to set focus on it.

CODE

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
strQuery = "Select * from Win32_Process"
Set ColItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(strQuery,,48)
For Each objItem In colItems
	If UCase(objItem.name)=UCase("notepad.exe") Then
	        msgbox objItem.name & " already running"
'-------- Here I want to set focus on the Open notepad window ------
		WScript.Quit
	End If
Next
objShell.run "notepad.exe" 

Regards
