How to make a window always-on-top?

27
The question is how to do it with any particular application running on the system (windows XP)? I saw some explanations for the python window, but not for another process. I was going about the WMI module, but frankly I am not so experienced to understand all of it... Still haven't looked at the Microsoft WMI page though.

When writing your own applications, it's easy to create a window with a property (or set that property after creation) that makes it "stay on top". I don't see applications writers leaving hooks for you to be able to make one of there windows change its behavior and getting a handle to such a window from the operating system would be quite difficult. Learning about WMI would be the place to start.
