Always on Top, or how not to lose sight of the windows in Windows

Always on Top, or how not to lose sight of the windows in Windows

Users of : Have you ever had the need to be alert to a window system and this option was not always on top, which helps us keep track of it? If you wear while using the Microsoft system, surely the answer was yes.

Always on Top option or Always on top is a feature available for some time in some of the applications of the system and also third-party applications, and is specifically to not lose sight of a window when this concerns us, yet we need continue to work with others. The reasons are many, from waiting for completion of an operation to have the need to view the progress of a process or information on any of the content we consume in our computer.

Most applications related to the latter case, such as music players to show us information on the subject that we are listening, have that option, but what happens if the application has not implemented and we want to keep track of the window? The clearest example may be Google Chrome, an excellent browser but lacks the function. Since most of the activities that many play are done through the browser, to be able to leave the window of it can be very interesting.

Looking extensions thereon have not found much, and what I’ve seen funconaba not quite right, so eventually I opted for a small program that can make any window in Windows stays right on top with a simple combination keys. Simply called Always On Top, can be downloaded from DropBox , and simply execute that for application to any other application or program.

It is a portable application that will place an icon in the system tray. Once there we have it, simply use the Ctrl + Space, taking the focus of the window you want to make up, never to lose sight of the application. And it’s that simple, but we have three additional options in the implementation of the taskbar:

  • Suspend hotkeys
  • Pause the script
  • Leave

The first space will lose Ctrl + effect, keeping the windows have already put in place above. The second unlock the windows, and the third simply closes the application, using both options at the same time. A small utility, nothing intrusive, you can easily fix the more headaches you have had one for years. Why is there such an option natively on Windows?
