Specific Window Managing Tweak in Gnome

    Hi everyone!
    I'm having a somewhat specific question. I'm on CentOS 6.3 with Gnome 2.28.2.
    I changed the movement key from the default "Alt" to the "Super Key" (Windows Logo). I now would like to have the following happening:
    Say I have 2 file browser windows open. I can of course switch between the windows when I'm clicking on another window. Now I would also like to have this happening when I use a modifier key, other than the windows-key (eg. alt, ctrl, shift).
    If I click with one of those modifiers held down on an inactive window I can still do stuff in it, however the window won't be the active window, but remain inactive. This is the main issue. If I for example hold the windows-key down and click on another window it becomes active. I would also like to have this happening with other modifier keys.

    Thanks in advance!
