    Is there a way in Windows XP Pro to force an open application to always be on top of any other open window?

    In my WinPC sign program the cutting panel always stays on top..It's kind of annoying...I've seen somewhere an "always on top" feature..I'll think about it some more.

    Fred,

    A few apps have the "always on top" option under the drop down menu if you click on the upper left icon on the title bar. Most apps don't have that option, though, and I'm not sure if there's another utility or addon that can force the others to stay on top.

    if it isn't built natively into the software you are using (i know some programs come with it), then the short answer is no.

    however, there are several shareware programs out there to correct this problem, and would enable you to take any window and set it to always stay on top of other applications. so far, i haven't found a freeware or open-source solution, but I am still searching for you. i will let you know if i find anything!

    edit. here is one freeware one i have found. don't know that it's any good though. http://www.bluechillies.com/details/24674.html

    Thanks guys. I tried the Always On Top first and then Power Menu. Both worked fine but Power menu seems a lot nicer in the way it provides control for turning on and off.

    This will probably save me an hour a day with my keywording chores at Express Clipart. :thumb:
