Bug Description

Specifically, if a window in minimized I think the expected action is to focus window when maximized. Currently if a window is minimized, and the maximize action is applied, the window maximizes when restored, but remains minimized. This is unintuitive, I think most users would expect said window to grab focus.

hi there,
first thanks for great plugin!

when dealing with this one, please also add automatic restore to the focus action,
or if you think someone uses it separately, I then lone for a new action that brings me the app window no matter what's its state.

thank a million!
