Some packages provide an always on top mode, like video gamers and music gamers. But what if the appliance that you really want to stick on top does not have the choice? You can use a third-party resolution resembling OnTopper.
We’ll be looking at Window TopMost Control. As the identify suggests, this utility could make any program’s window stick over others, which is nice for multi-tasking.
TopMost is a transportable software program and the archive accommodates executables for 32-bit and 64-bit programs. Run the EXE and the program ought to begin on the system tray. Open any utility (Notepad, Firefox, and many others). Try left-clicking on the Window TopMost Control tray icon, nothing will occur. Now, attempt double-clicking on it, you’ve got simply enabled your first sticky window. There will not be any visible change when you simply have one window open, however attempt opening one other utility, and you may see the distinction.
When you’ve a number of home windows open, and also you sticky the program that is not at present in focus, TopMost will robotically swap to the window that you just caught, as a sign that you’ve got made a change. And likewise, it is going to reduce the window that you’ve got unstuck.
Right-click on the icon to view TopMost’s context menu. Mouse over the primary possibility, i.e. Window List: a pop-up pane seems that lists the home windows of each program which are at present open on your pc. Move the cursor over the title of the window and it highlights the corresponding program. Left click on on the chosen window to pin it.
Note: Sometimes the tray menu’s record seems after a minor delay, simply await a second and it’ll pop-up.
If you’ll slightly use the keyboard for placing home windows on top, you might achieve this with the hotkey: Ctrl + Alt + Space. This works for unsticking home windows too, however you may want to swap to the window and use the important thing combo. Can I stick a couple of window on top? Yes, you may. This means you may rearrange the home windows wherever you need whereas working in one other utility.
To unstick a window choose it once more from the tray menu or by utilizing the keyboard shortcut. You cannot unstick home windows by double-clicking the tray icon. The program respects the Show Desktop possibility (Windows + D), which you should utilize to quickly reduce home windows that you’ve got caught.
The tray icon can be utilized to entry the program’s choices. Changes that you just make to it are saved to the INI file that is positioned within the folder the place you extracted the archive to. In truth, it remembers the final sticky home windows upon exit and restart.
The program does not essentially have to be stored working within the background on a regular basis, i.e., you may set some program home windows to stay on top, and exit Topmost if you would like that. But to unstick them you may want to run the program once more or delete the setting from the INI file. Or you may attempt the command line choices when you do not like working with the program’s interface.
The hotkey might be personalized to your liking from the Options pane, however it’s nonetheless restricted to Ctrl + Alt + Key of your alternative. And whilst you’re on the identical display, you may optionally set the program to begin robotically with home windows.
Note: I did discover a difficulty with Firefox. When you stick a Firefox window, you will not give you the chance to entry the browser’s menu. Unsticking it fixes the difficulty. I am unsure if this can be a bug with the program, or if it has do with the browser’s overlay.
Window TopMost Control is user-friendly, to the purpose, and simply works high quality.
