I disagree. Most programs use some kind of pop-up windows, which can be 
toggled by a button. Usually these buttons are in the toolbar though, 
all Microsoft office programms have buttons there which will toggle the 
display e.g. of another toolbar (for drawing) or property windows).

You are right as to that pop-up windows should look different from 
normal windows to reduce the possible confusion you mention.

Often wrong but never in doubt!
