Suggestion for EDIT Mode

RE: Suggestion for EDIT Mode
Editing a program normally seems to place it at the top already, selected by default, in the recent OS version I use (though the app program always appears just above that). The only flaw I see here is that if the app program was the last one edited, the cursor doesn't remember that but appears one below, which can be annoying.

Relating to this, it would be nice if the program editor would remember the last cursor position within the program I was editing. What's especially annoying is that it's too easy to press a wrong key that instantly pops me out of the program editor and into another screen. Then I have to go back and find my place, and get back the train of thought that was lost due to the disruption. This happens to me all the time, and the lost productivity adds up faster than you might think. A good UI design, IMO, would either allow me to easily return to where I was without lost state (i.e., my cursor and viewing position) when this happens, or failing that, at least not allow me to leave by accident so easily.
