- Upvoted a comment on PowerMenuThere are 2 editions of this prog, Portable + Installer. First released in 2002 with conflicting last update dates. 2015 and 2018 ?? Downloads are available from Softpedia, ... the developer cannot be traced. _Always onTop:_ Works as advertised, but is limited to FILES only, not available for file-explorers (Win-Exp. etc). There is no convenient visual indication that a file is in on-top mode. A lot of tedious mouse clicking in each file's Window Control Menu ... (top left icon in window Title Bar) [Deskpins](https://alternativeto.net/software/deskpins/) is a vastly superior program, because each on-top window is flagged with a colored pin and can be applied to folders, system dialogs and file-explorers. _Transparency:_ Only available to Win-2K and XP. It locked up on Win-7 PRO x64 and would not release, even when PowerMenu was closed/Exit. _Minimize to Tray:_ A bit pointless (IMO) considering sys.tray is very crowded, and minimize to TaskBar is far more versatile. Basically IMO PowerMenu is a waste of time, because there many more versatile alternatives available, and without bugs (Win-7)
