I'm doing some writing and I want to have my text editor open without any distractions/interruptions. In Linux I can just drop out of my WM, use a shell and fire up emacs and not worry about it, but I'm on a Win7 box now.
Is there any way - via native functionality or another piece of software - to completely 'focus' on one particular window. By 'focus' I ideally mean I want that window maximized and I don't want notifications from the taskbar or system tray. Bonus points if it let the window be 'Always on Top' or prevent dialogs, etc from other running programs/processes.
If it's relevant, I'll usually be running emacs on cygwin.
