Keep An App Always On Top Mac

  1. Always On Top App
  2. Always On Top Windows 10 Free

Always within reach. Keep works on your phone, tablet and computer. Everything you add to Keep syncs across your devices so your important stuff is always with you. The always on top option is basically a way to pin a window in front of all others, even when it is not in focus. While this feature is most common in media player apps, you may want to use it. Download this app from Microsoft Store for Windows 10, Windows 10 Team (Surface Hub). See screenshots, read the latest customer reviews, and compare ratings for Always on Top. Nov 15, 2017  Update: This fix isn't permanent if you're working with the Spaces bar in Mission Control. Choosing Esc takes you out of full-screen mode, as it would in, say, PowerPoint or Word; however, it removes the file from the Spaces bar. Once you restore it, the view returns to full-screen mode.

This is great. Thanks for posting. Now would there be a way to keep the application hidden?

There is, already. Read this:

Thanks for the suggestion. This is quite technical. I am in no way a developer and got lost in the instruction. I was hoping for a simple solution like the one presented in this hint. I don't mind having the icon showing the application open in the dock but would like to hide the window.

Maybe this explanation can help, if you want to hide dock icon. (From here:
Disabling the dock icon:
Because HG doesn't really have any user-interaction features, you may follow these steps to disable the dock icon. Navigate to wherever you placed HG and right-click on it and select 'Show Package Contents.' Open up contents and then right-click Info.plist. Highlight 'Open With' and select TextEdit from the list (If TextEdit is not in the list, choose 'Other..' and navigate to TextEdit and click 'Open').
Paste the following just after <dict>:


Not directly through launchd; but then again, I'm not sure why you'd want to do that, so maybe I'm misunderstanding the question. what app are you talking about, and what do you want hidden?

I remotely connect to my computer at home with an application called TeamViewer. When TW launches it opens a window which provide login information. If you close that window, TW quits. You can't keep the application open without the window.
There are other members of the family who use this computer. They are sometimes distracted and close the window and with it, the application. Your hint comes very handy to prevent this. However, to prevent confusion it would be better if the window would hide when the application opens. You can do this when you add an application in the Login Items.

Badly designed port of a windows app. You should write the developers and tell them that this is un-Mac-like behavior and they should fix it.
That being said, this is not (IMO) how you should approach this issue. It would be better for you to create a second user account just for work and enable fast user switching. This way you have a handy menu that lets you switch between accounts - you can log into your work account, start the application, then switch to the other account and let your family have at it: the work account and the TW app will run in the some strange background dimension where no one can see it. Just tell your family not to go into your work account on pain of eternal grounding. (you could password the account if you really wanted to, but it would add the extra stop of entering the password when you wanted access).
In fact, you could set up individual accounts for each of your family members so that they could all do their stuff without it mixing in with everyone else's stuff. You'd want to max out your machine's RAM (fast user switching keeps each logged-in account active, which hogs memory).

'you could password the account if you really wanted to'
Oh my goodness. Are you seriously suggesting that users don't apply a password by default? This isn't 1980, you know..

You'd be surprised. I'm always seeing people over in the forums who share their user accounts with friends, college roommates, random acquaintances. People, I swear…

However, If you're already sharing a user account with your family (and I assume this is a desktop that doesn't travel out of the house where other people could get physical access), then putting a password on your work account would just be to keep your kids/spouse out of it - it wouldn't really be needed for security reasons (unless you're worried about someone breaking into your house late at night so they could update their facebook page).

That being said, if you're going to have an account with no password, do not under any circumstances make it an administrator account or put it on the sudoers list. That would just be dumb.

Actually, this is a common behavior for applications that won't open more than one window at a time. For instance, Apple's own iPhoto, System Preferences, Dictionary and Calculator will quit on closing the window.
I appreciate your suggestions. I am already using multiple accounts on the computer but I also do remote support for extended family and friends and would like to keep it as simple as possible. A window auto-hide at launch would be just perfect in most cases.

Thanks for the suggestion. This is quite technical. I am in no way a developer and got lost in the instruction. I was hoping for a simple solution like the one presented in this hint. I don't mind having the icon showing the application open in the dock but would like to hide the window.

Google the system preferences app Do Something When - I think you can set that up to automatically run a script to hide the app when it's launched.

Jun 27, 2012  Chrome is great for everything and works across all my devices so it’s nice but the app recently changed one of their buttons and is making it a hassle to use. The center button at the bottom of the screen used to pull up the search bar a the keyboard which made it easy instead of having to reach to the top of the screen to tap the omnibar to. Chrome mac app has a 2. Every Mac comes with Apple's Safari web browser installed on it, and lots of people use it. Safari is far from the only browser you can use on a Mac, however.

I installed this Preference Pane. You can set it to open a document or an app when an app is launched (no option to run a script as such). I am not familiar with applescripts but managed to create an app with Automator that hides the window after launching TeamViewer. It does what I wanted to do. I am an happy camper now! Thanks tedw and everybody else for the kind and appreciated inputs.

I thought keeping and hiding an app is easier to carry out with an AppleScript app. An icon more in your Dock, though.

Doesn't this LaunchAgent prevent you from logging out? Every time you try to log out, Stickies relaunches and blocks the logout.

No, it shouldn't. launchd has a special procedure for logout and shutdown, in which it disables launchd jobs (for precisely this reason, I think - the KeepAlive key is commonly used for certain kinds of background tasks).

I rebooted several times to test this claim and the shut down was cancelled the first time only. I don't know why it happened only the first time.

Maybe you had 'sudo launchctl load [..]' by mistake?

You lost me here. All I did is implementing the steps as instructed and did not change anything in between reboots.

Keep An App Always On Top Mac

This is pretty cool, Thanks! It works fine on my 10.5 system, but while it's loaded on 10.4, it doesn't seem to function. Any quick suggestions? Thanks again!

Always On Top App

the KeepAlive key was introduced in 10.5. for 10.4, you could try replacing KeepAlive/true with OnDemand/false. Unfortunately I don't have a 10.4 partition to test this on
