I also find this pop-up in front of everything that After Effects does very unpleasant and annoying, usually there are actions that take quite some time and are a perfect moment to do another task but After Effects just pops up and breaks the focus on whatever you are doing, if you are double hands writing, you have to get a hand on the mouse, click minimize and then go on. I have been searching for a fix on this but still no luck, I'm with you Silviud, thanks for posting this up! If anybody knows how to disable the pop-up please drop a line here 🙂

If you are talking about the Home Screen, the screen that says "Welcome to After Effects, Your Name" you can disable it in preferences (settings on newer macs).

PRefrences (or Settings) > Startup and Repair > Click off "Enable Home Screen"

Hey mate, nope it's not about the home screen, this happens whenever you are using After Effects and it finishes any task like saving, opening a project, finishing rendering, autosaving, if you for instance, hit save and then it take let's say 15 seconds to save, then you go to do something else (like google for a texture or anything) and not stare at the saving progress bar, when After Effects (on the background) finishes saving it pops in front of your web browser or anything you have in front and just gets in the middle without being called.

But now that you mention Mac, I don't know if this just happens on Windows (I'm on Windows) maybe it doesn't happen on Mac.
