How To Make A Window Stay Always On Top in Windows 7

There are times it’s convenient when having one window always stay on top of any other windows on your windows desktop, especially on a dual monitor setup. And that’s exactly why PowerMenu comes in play.

It’s a small free utility that only does one thing, adding a few extra menu options in addition to the standard “Close”, “Maximize”, etc options. Besides Always on Top, it also offers Transparency and Minimize to Tray.

The tool was developed originally for Windows 2000, but works quite well in all other versions, including Windows 7. However, because of the new task bar in Windows 7 that doesn’t have Window options, the only way to make it work is to use the top frame of the Window. Just right-click and pick one of the three extra options.

And here is what the Live Writer looks like when the Transparency was set to 40%, with the big green leaf as the wallpaper at the background.

That’s it, and enjoy.
