Desk Topmost 1.0



Desk Topmost is a small and handy tool that provides a handy alternative to the "Show Desktop" feature that comes with Windows. Instead of minimizing all your active Windows, Desk Topmost floats your desktop transparently on the top of all other windows. You can quickly access your desktop shortcuts without having to minimize any of your windows and automatically return to your normal desktop after clicking on a shortcut. Be default, the application uses CTRL+ALT+D to float the desktop but you can change this, as well as transparency levels, from the configuration dialog.


We usually use the keyboard shortcut "Win+D" or press the "Show Desktop" button in the Quick Launch Bar to access desktop, but unfortunately it isn't very convenient. If you usually have more than 20 applications running simultaneously, the progress will have a certain delay.

What's worse, you can't come back to the previous window instantly after running a program or opening a document from the desktop, you have to look for it in the taskbar and your train of thought is often interrupted.

Desk Topmost solves this in a different way: It will let the desktop float on the top instead of minimizing all the windows

Desk Topmost is a system tray app which brings this very convenience for Windows 7 users. Rather than replacing any Windows  native functions, it allows user to associate hotkey combination for accessing desktop items, from anywhere.

When hotkey is used, it overlays desktop items letting you open any folder, shortcut, application, etc. On pressing Esc, it will bring back all the windows on which you were working on.

First off, it’s advisable to change the default hotkey combination, which is Ctrl+Alt+D, to avoid any conflicts. Select Config from system tray menu and specify the new hotkey combination. Here, you can also define desktop overlay opacity level.

Once done, use the specified hotkey combination to let it overlay your desktop. All the items are accessible, means that you can open any application without disturbing opened windows.
