Activates an application or window currently running on Windows.

titleThe title that appears in the title bar of the application (String).
wait(Optional) The number indicating if the application has the focus:
0 = the application is activated immediately (default)
1 = the application waits until it has the focus

* The "title" can also be the task id of the application (returned from the Shell function).
* If "wait" = 1, then the calling application waits until it has the focus before activating the specific application.
* If "wait" = True, then 1 is used.
* This subroutine cannot change whether the application or window is maximised or minimised, it only changes focus.
* You can use the Shell function to change the status of the window (maximised or minimised).
