    Default Pin a window to stay on top of other windows

    It seems clear that there is no ability within Windows 10 to pin a particular window to stay on top of other windows. For instance, my wish is to pin the Task
    Manager, just at times, on top of my photo-editing and other programs. Other people might wish to pin a calculator or notepad to stay in position, instead of
    disappearing beneath other windows. In my research into possibilities, there is at least one third party app to achieve this, called DeskPins, which is considered
    good by TechJunkie

    Best option?
    Affinity Photo 1.8.5 (marvellous)
    Lightroom 6
    Nik Collection
    Sumatra for PDF
    Speccy
    AZZ Cardfile

    Many thanks, Bevy, just got around to trying and it is just so easy!

    That site looks interesting, Zippity, I will have a look at it on the weekend

    With Linux you just right click on the window & select 'always on top'. Don't know why Windows doesn't do the same.
    Also in Linux if you press Alt you can drag a window by any part of it, very handy on a small screen where you can't reach the top border, or the buttons at the bottom.
