  • OnTopReplica

    A lightweight application that provides a real-time thumbnail replica of any window of your choice. OnTopReplica will stay always on top, allowing you to keep track of the original window while working and without having to keep the keyboard focus on it. You may also crop regions out of the original window, for instance removing GUI elements from your video player or browser, thus allowing you to watch movies or youtube videos in a corner of your monitor while working.

  • DeskPins

    DeskPins can be used to make any application topmost, that is, to keep it above all other windows. Just grab a pin from the DeskPins icon in the system notification area (a.k.a. taskbar tray) and click on any window. This functionality is identical to the "Always on Top" setting found in some programs. With DeskPins you can add this feature to any program!

  • Overlay2

    What Overlay2 does I run a photo studio in London, and I was looking for software that would enable me to make a semi-transparent floating window on my computer. I wanted to be able to open any image to use as a floating positioning guide over the actual image that I'm shooting. I use Adobe Lightroom for image capture, and I wanted to be able to float the art-director's layout over my photo in Lightroom, to check that my shot was a good fit.
