How to make Windows 7 sticky notes window a TopMost window?

September 19, 2010 12 comments

Well, this post is not related to the CodeFluent Entities product, but it’s still helpful for developers so they can remember what they have to code today!

If you want to make sure the little Windows 7 sticky notes windows are always on top of all other windows (why isn’t that an out-of-the-box feature BTW?), you can craft a program, or use a tool for this.

Today, I will use the NIRCMD tool (found on this super-über-duper site http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html). Just type this in the command line:

C:\> nircmd.exe win settopmost class Sticky_Notes_Top_Window 1

What it does behind the scene is change the TOPMOST flag on all windows with the ‘Sticky_Notes_Top_Window’ class name. If you want to undo it, type this:

C:\> nircmd.exe win settopmost class Sticky_Notes_Top_Window 0

And voilà, you’re all set!
