Make A Window Stay on Top of Other Windows, Even After Losing Focus

Make A Window Stay on Top of Other Windows

# DeskPins – Pin A Window to Stay on Top

Make A Window Stay on Top of Other Windows
DeskPins (Link) can be used to make any application topmost, that is, to keep it above all other windows. Just grab a pin from the DeskPins icon in the system notification area (a.k.a. taskbar tray) and click on any window. This functionality is identical to the "Always on Top" setting found in some programs.

With DeskPins you can add this feature to any program! Now, if you have a particular application that you want to keep it always on top at all time, instead of activating the deskpins everytime, you can create an Autopin rule such that the application is automatically pin to the desktop each time it is launched.

# PowerMenu – Add Useful Options to Window Controls incl. Always on Top

PowerMenu (Link) is a small application that some extra menu items to the windows control menu in addition to the standard "Close", "Maximize", etc options. The extra menus are: Always On Top, Transparency and Minimize To Tray.You can choose to keep an app "always on top," meaning that no matter what else you do, you’re still going to see that window.

You can also add transparency to windows, letting you keep an eye on them while seeing what’s behind them as well. Assign a priority to tasks, to decide which applications get all the horsepower and which need to just sit down and wait their turn. And then there’s the ever-popular "minimize to tray", which lets you keep an app running but gets it out of your face.
We also reviewed Chameleon Window Manager (Link) which allow you to control the windows of your programs using customizable buttons added to the title bars of the windows (Always on Top, Minimize to Tray, Minimize to Caption, Specify Transparency, Position window at left/right of screen).
