Pros & Cons:

Intuitive interface, easy to use with pin design, intelligent handling of various application types, works on skinned and DOS windows.
Does not work properly on some modern apps like Groove Music, etc.

Our Review:

DeskPins is a small application to keep windows on top of others by setting pins on the windows. The user interface is intuitive, just click the DeskPins icon in the system tray, and drop the pin on any window you like to set on-top of other windows. To remove the pin, click it again.

DeskPins provides an option to enable autopins, change pin colors and other settings such as hotkeys to enter pin mode and toggle active window pins.

The application features intelligent handling of various application types. It works on normal windows, skinned windows (such as Windows Media Player in skin mode), or a DOS command window.

However, while it works flawlessly on most desktop app windows, it does sends this error message "could not set the pin's parent window" when you try to pin windows of some modern apps such as Groove Music in Windows 10.
