  • SetSelectedNotebook[ notebook ] makes the specified notebook be the currently selected one in the front end.
  • SetSelectedNotebook takes a NotebookObject as its argument.

  • Making a notebook the currently selected one does not affect the current selection within that notebook, or within other notebooks.
