Set "Always on top" on tab window to prevent z-index and alt-tab problems

Charles Williams 7 years ago updated by Joel Thornton 7 years ago 0

When a Chrome window is focused, set the tab window to be "always on top". When no Chrome window is focused, remove the "always on top" property. This would allow you to freely switch between windows without having to focus the tab window and mess up the alt-tab ordering.

This doesn't seem to be currently possible using the Chrome Extension API.

It is technically possible to do it on Windows by using a separate helper application that runs on Windows (outside of Chrome) and does Win32-type operations on behalf of the extension. I have done some development on just such a helper, but don't have anything finalized to share at this stage.
