That is a limitation to Windows. The always on tops works unless a program is full screen, then that program gets the top of the screen.

My program doesnt do an overlay, it is just a normal program Window.

What I do on my system is I have multiple monitors setup. When I game I only game on my main monitor while I keep all my stats and other programs on the other screen so I can see them. :-)

Nope, it is just a program Window, not a overlay for another program like what steam or origin does with games. :wink:
