    Okay, dump question of the day.

    I'm working in a audio editing program and attempting to use the online help features. It happens to open up in Firefox but I have the same problem in Chrome.How do I keep the browser open and also work in the other program. It keeps minimizing down to the tray. In the past I've had to minimize both windows to keep them open on the desktop but for some reason the editing program barely minimizes and I'm not able to grab and shrink the sides. Every time I move over to the program, the browser pops back down.

    WinWarden is a simple little free program that lets you set a page to Always on top among many other things...

    Open your Firefox or Chrome window. Drag the sides to the desired size. Right-click the WinWarden icon in the systray and click on Always on top. You'll have that window within your audio editing program.

    If no luck,

    There are many more alternatives:

    Always on Top

    PowerMenu

    Make Any Program In Windows Stay "Always On Top"
