The following code placed in app designer with MATLAB 2022a opens the file dialog screen behind the calling .mlapp. The calling .mlapp simply has a button on the screen that calls the following code.
function ButtonPushed(app, event)
[f,p] = uigetfile();
There are several posts about the calling app losing focus AFTER uigetfile is called. This is a different problem. Is there a way to open the file diaglog screen in front of the calling app?

there is a an answer somewhere on this forum from Friedrich IIRC, just do
after uigetfile and it should be fine.

@Smith Smith, you might try using uiopen in lieu of uigetfile. Otherwise, I would suggest reinstalling MATLAB.
