Always On Top

Post by BlaZ »

Any chance of adding an "always on top" option for the console window? With my single VM setup, DOSBox doors will open in normal windows on top of the console and suck up system resources unnecessarily. If I pull the console back to the front manually, the problem is solved. Would love to have that happen automatically. :)

While not a direct fix to your issue, does using Windows-CTRL-T while the console window is active achieve a similar result?

This should work on Windows 10 and above.

EDIT: This requires PowerToys for Windows which can be downloaded here:

While Microsoft gives you absolutely ZERO warning about this, I recommend you DO NOT install the Power Toys app if you are running Win10-32. It works fine on all my 64-bit Windows computers that I tested it on, but installing it on the Win10-32 VM caused a BSOD. :(

Oh well...I'll keep looking for other ideas.
