If you click on your name in the upper right, you'll get a dropdown menu, you can then select "Show menu bar",

From the menu bar, click on tools, always on top, uncheck always on top.

You're welcome John, it's actually the live messenger instant messaging software.

The always on top is just the window that opens, some people like it to be on top of other windows, some don't. :)
