Continuing my recent theme of talking about the little tools that I use on constant basis to make my work more efficient, this one is called "Desk Pins",
Once again, simplicity rules the day. Desk Pins runs with a very low memory footprint and does absolutely nothing unless you ask it to. Just click once on it in the system tray, then click on the task bar of any application and that application will set to stay "Top Most" over whatever you're working on.
When Desk Pins is set to running on an application, a small red "thumb tack" appears. Just click that thumb tack again to turn Desk Pins off.
I use it to keep a small browser window open or a text editor where I can be looking at documentation or reference material without having to drag it over to the second monitor -- or when I'm on my laptop somewhere and don't have a second monitor.
Desk Pins meets my criteria for a good utility. It's quick, reliable, unobtrusive, and elegantly simple.
