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 of the standard computers (15″), it can be a problem. You cannot see both of those windows at the same time.
Let’s assume you are browsing your emails in Google Chrome and all the while viewing videos in VLC on your monitor. The issue is that if you change to the program, the media player window moves to the foundation and the other way around.
If you might want to keep that video window from covering up even while you carry the program to the closer view, you may download “Always on Top.” This is a free utility that will “stick” any program window to the frontal area of desktop area with a basic keyboard shortcut.
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. 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 a new movie on the bottom right side of your screen while checking Facebook or Twitter newsfeed for the latest updates. This is especially useful for bloggers, Internet Marketers and anyone who works with computers.
All you need to do is download the app (I have provided the download link just below this line) and use it to make any program window always stay on the top (like Chrome, Firefox, Office Word, etc.).
Download Always on Top for Windows Computers
As I have already stated in the introduction part of this post, Always on Top is a Windows utility. It can be used on all Pretty much all the Windows Operating Systems. You can download “Always on Top” for your Windows XP/7/8/8.1/10 computer from the link below for free. The app is less than 200kb in size.
|File Name||Always on Top v1.0|
|File Size||200 Kb|
|Platform||Windows 7 and higher|
Using this utility is very easy. You just download and unzip the zip file; then click twice on the file to run it. Once it is running on your computer, you can select any window by clicking on the header section of that window and press the Ctrl+Space shortcut to keep that window on top of everything else. You can also watch the video below to see this app in action.
Some Softwares like VLC Media Player and even some Operating System’s like Ubuntu has an inbuilt feature which lets you keep any window always stay on top.
However, only a few software has this feature. Anyhow, let me know in the comments how much you like this app.
