If you're as busy as most of us, when you sit down at your computer, you've got several different applications running at once, many of which have multiple open windows. You're humming along just fine until you need to grab something from the Desktop. Maybe it's an application icon you need to double click to start another tool, or maybe it's that file you just downloaded. Either way, you typically get to that stuff by hitting the Windows key along with the D (as in "desktop"). Magically, all your open windows minimize and your Desktop is laid bare before you. That's fine as long as you are doing what you came to do, but then it's time to return to whatever you were up to before. Now you've got to dig through all those minimized windows to figure out which ones you need to bring back, and then you've got to get them stacked in just the right order so you can find what you need to get the job done.

Or you can check out Desk Topmost. With this application, instead of getting all the stuff out of your way and off the Desktop, it brings the Desktop to you. Once activated, Desk Topmost lets the Desktop "float" on top of everything else on your system. Now you can do what you need to do with the Desktop without making you deal with all that other stuff. It's just got to help make you more efficient. And that's good.

Desk Topmost is a free download. It's a Windows application.

    If you have Windows 7 you don’t need this. At the far bottom right of the screen is a small rectangle that is actually a ‘show desktop’ button. Click it once and the desktop comes to the front, click it again and all your windows come back to their original position.
