Dell Display Manager 1470 annoyance, get previous version

Yesterday Dell Display Manager (DDM) gave an update prompt, which I followed and downloaded version 1470.

Today I lost two hours trying to solve this problem. I use DDM regularly to adjust my Dell U2713H Monitor and avoid the monitor’s buttons. This is easier because I can use the keyboard. Yet v. 1470 of DDM upon opening loses focus!, which means that the keyboard remains useless! To grab the mouse and target the program’s window is almost equal with using the monitor’s buttons.

I hope the next version of Dell Display Manager addresses this annoyance, however, the only solution so far is to just downgrade to the previous version. Not that you lose much. Perhaps DDM 1470 just supports some more Dell monitors, because all functions are identical with the previous version, the only difference being this losing of focus!
