    Does anyone know how to put an app always on top?

    I want my download manager, and my notepad to be on top when I'm working, and the option is not in the gui.

    I know this can be done, as various apps have it, like coolmon.

    when we get this, I'll put it on the my favorite tweaks thread.

    hope someone can help...thanx

    No I don't.

    But doesn't the Task Manager window have an option to make it 'always on top'.

    If I knew anything about regedit etc... I'd reckon the key to it was somwhere in that direction. I.e. see if the feature that allows Task Manager to always be on top can be duplicated for anything else...

    My guess! :)

    I use a program called PowerMenu which is a small app that can be run hidden etc.

    Also if you use a nvidia card with recent drivers, you can use the desktop manager (which i don't like enabling) found in 'additional properties' for your card.

    cant you just use actual windows manager or something like that. or maybe it was called actual title buttons. Was a program that could make any program stay on op or transparent or minize to tray...

    ya...I guess an app would do it, but it would be nice to know what to add to the rregistry, and then put this on the my favorite tweaks thread

    ha...this is in the wrong spot...can someone move this to coding and design?

    also, I don't have a registry compare program.

    if anyone does, run a compare with coolmon always on top, and then again, without it always on top...we'll find the registry entry with that
