Sometimes the most annoying issues with computers have a simple fix, thank goodness.
Say you're watching a 22-minute TED Talk by Tony Robbins on your small-screen laptop, and seven minutes in, you want to check your Gmail, but don't want to stop the video. If you leave it playing for the audio and go on over to your browser, you'll miss a PowerPoint visual at the 7:40 mark. Why can't you just keep the TED Talk window on top?
You can, actually. It's just not a built-in feature in Windows.
The aptly named Always on Top utility will keep the window you don't want to lose floating above the other ones want to work in. And it couldn't be simpler to use.
Download the .zip file you'll find after you click the blue button below and install Always on Top. Then, you simply select the window you want to float above the others and press Ctrl + Space. The same keyboard shortcut turns off the utility.
This short video shows how the utility works. Let us know what you think of Always on Top in the comment section below.
