vbscript - Bring Internet Explorer Appliation window to front


I have a script where I create an IE window through CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application"). The problem is, whenever I run this script, it always opens behind whatever else might already be open on my machine. I want this IE window to open on TOP of everything else. It does not have to be "always on top", like the option in Task Manager, but it should at least initially open on top. After that, I don't care what happens. I have searched high and low and have been unable to find a way to achieve this. I have tried appactivate and focus() but neither of those seem to work. Any suggestions?
I am running windows 7 with IE 11
You probably have the problem because the title of the IE window is not exactly the title of the page (ie. "Yahoo - Internet Explorer")
Therefore you must bring it to the front before you start navigating to the page :
Set ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
ie.Visible = True
CreateObject("WScript.Shell").AppActivate "Internet Explorer"
ie.Navigate "http://www.yahoo.com/"
