runs on Windows

If you throw enough effort at your computer, you can make Windows do a lot of interesting stuff. Unfortunately, you may spend a lot of time and effort digging through various directories and Control Panel locations to find the specific tool you're looking for. It would be handy to put a bunch of this functionality in one easy-to-find location.

WindowMenuPlus is a Swiss Army knife of sorts for dealing with windows on your system. With this tool installed, a right click on the Title Bar of any open window will bring up a menu of helpful goodies you can apply to this window or to the application that owns it. You can choose to always keep it on top or to make it more-or-less transparent, as well as tweaking the priority of the parent application, or even kill that app if you like to live on the edge. Configuration is easy from an icon in the System Tray, so it's not a big chore to make it behave the way you want it to.

You can use WindowMenuPlus for free (non-commercial only).

    Generally works ok – allows me to watch a video in an Internet Explorer window whilst carrying on working in other apps.

    Unfortunately doesn’t seem to work on Google Chrome.
