I am currently using http://users.forthne...ograms/deskpins.html

If you come across a app that shows pushpin icon on all windows title bars (off by default of course) so that we can easily just pin a window with 1 click, let me know.

FileBox eXtender is a freeware which can do this and it works in Win7.

you can see the pin in this image below..

I use Actual Windows Manager

Not free, but very good. Does more than just pushpins though.

I use the free version of AnVir Task Manager. It can pin windows on top and a lot of other tasks too (see the attached image below). The nice thing is that it doesn't add any "icons" or "buttons" to your title bar.

Turbotop should do the work.

Also the attached file would do the trick. When you press win+Up keys on the keyboard, it marks the active window as always on top. Pressing again would remove the always on top flag.

Here is the authotkey code I used:

Code: [Select]
#Up::WinSet,AlwaysOnTop,Toggle,A

I have a simplistic one I did several years ago.  Topmost Toggle.  Control right clicking the mouse on the active window toggles the OnTop attribute and pops up a dialog to tell the current state. It doesn't otherwise change anything on the window frame or mess with controls.  You can download from my hotkey page:

It's free for you to use at your own risk.

Thanks to all, but Filebox Extender perfectly fit my needs because the buttons are directly integrated on the window title!!

Thanks again  :Thmbsup:
