Keep a window always visible on top of other windows

In Linux KDE this function is built-in: Right click on any Window title > Advanced > Keep above others

In Windows, this feature does not come shipped from factory. You need a 3rd party tool. This small program is useful.

Download, extract the executable and double-click; it'll now be visible in the system tray as an icon. Go to your window you want to make visible and use key combo Ctr+Space to enable/disable that widow to be always on top.

Together with WizMouse, this option is quite useful and will increase your productivity working with multiple documents at the same time. Viewing and comparing two large documents or spreadsheets  becomes much efficient.

Always on Top: Keep Any Window Visible Always
WizMouse causes your mouse wheel to scroll the window under the mouse pointer instead of the currently focused window. You don't have to click on a window to focus it before you're able to scroll it with the mouse wheel.
