Windows 7: Overlaying primary window

Overlaying primary window

Greetings,

My question is quite simple.

For those who can relate to "Fraps", you know there's the option "Fraps window always on top".

Now, I'm wondering if there's a way to do this with another application/window.
To be more precise, I play Oldschool Runescape on the downloadable client and I want it to be visible at all time when I'm browsing or going through files.

Thank you,

rorocwalker

AutoIt might work for you.

Code:
WinSetOnTop("Untitled - Notepad", "", 1)
Replace Untitled - Notepad with the title of the window of interest.

You will not need to compile the one line script shown above, just leave/run it as text.

Thank you for the response but it doesn't work for me, do you know any safe freeware that offers that specific fix automatically?

Please test it on Notepad.

Open Notepad.

Install AutoIt.

Copy/paste/save/run that one line of code.

Let me know if it works.

*Edit:
Nvm, it worked!
Thanks a lot! I didn't know the script was case sensitive.

Sadly, it does not work for all windows - but let's make sure that it is not due to a typo like two spaces between words.

The title info must be perfect.

On the Windows Start menu, in the AutoIt folder, locate/run:
AutoIt Window Info (x64)
or
AutoIt Window Info (x86)

Drag/drop the Finder Tool (cross hairs) onto the window that you want to stay on top. The AutoIt Window Info tool should now contain that window's title on the tab named Window. Double click on the title. That will put the exact info into the Windows clipboard. Paste that title into the script and test.
