Most of us are fond of multitasking on our computers? For instance, you may like to watch movies while browsing the web using Chrome. If you use a big widescreen monitor, then this is not going to affect you. However, if we talk about most standard computers (15″), it can be a problem. You cannot see both of those windows at the same time. That’s why Brighter Guide will teach you how to download Always on Top for Windows!
Let’s assume you are browsing your emails in Google Chrome on Windows and all the while viewing videos in VLC on your monitor. If you change to the program running the email, the media player window moves to the foundation while the email becomes the active window.
If you might want to keep that video window from covering up even while you carry the single program to the closer view, you may download “Always on Top” standard applications to set your video in a pinned window. This is a free utility that will “stick” various types of windows, even from a hung program to the desktop’s frontal area with basic keyboard shortcuts. In short, it sets an active window pin. You can put it back to a full-sized window later.
To solve this issue, Mr. Amit Agarwal of labnol.org created something called “Always on Top.” Always on Top is a little freeware utility for Windows computers to set Window pins. It can keep any window on top of your computer screen. This makes it easy for you to do multitasking on your PC with two or even more windows at the same time.
Just imagine how useful this can be for watching from a movie window at the bottom right side of your screen while checking Facebook or Twitter newsfeed for the latest updates. This is especially useful for file transfer or working on file browsers while blogging or doing other things on a fullscreen window. The key features would include allowing you to multi-task.
All you need to do is download the app (I have provided the download link below) and use it to make any program window of choice always stay on the top (like Chrome, Firefox, Office Word, etc.).
