is there a way to make the setting of 'always on top' to be only 'always on top' of other NT windows and not other windows of programs im running on my computer?

here is how i have it setup, the 3 windows(DOM, T&S, and POT indicator chart) i want to be on top of the NT chart:


and when i pull up mIRC those windows are still on top.. i know that this is normally not possible in windows, always on top means always on top, but i know theres always a way around everything so maybe its possible..

You'll need a third party app to do it if the app itself doesn't have the option.

Check these:

DeskPins adds an "always on top" thumbtack to any Windows app

Out of curiosity, what is wrong with the ones I listed? What do they not do? In particular DeskPins.

because those options dont allow me to suggest which windows i want certain windows to be always on top of.. dunno if that makes sense..

btw, what about a futures.io (formerly BMT) IRC channel?
