I'm use the Windows 7 built-in calculator from time to time, and when I use it, I want to make it stay above all the other windows, so I can see the numbers and copy them, etc to other applications. How can I do this?

Other than putting the windows side-by-side please.

As listed in this answer for another question. You can use autohotkey which is loved by a lot of users.

Toggle the active window topmost status (always on top):

      WinSet, AlwaysOnTop, Toggle,A

I've actually not used autohotkey much, so I'm unfamiliar with the does this code work? do I just create a new script, copy and paste this into the script config, and then what? a little confused here... – studiohack May 1 '10 at 2:14 Because they can say it so much easier lol – MrStatic May 1 '10 at 2:48
