Our rating: 

3.5

Pros & Cons:

Click and unclick directly on the pin to the windows, easy to use among other features such as roll-up, access to favorite and recent folders or documents.
Setting some skinned windows, DOS and modern app windows on top is not supported.

Our Review:

FileBox eXtender adds a setting-on-top button directly to the window. This makes the task more intuitive and simpler; click and unclick on the added pin serves the purpose. You do not need to drop the pin like Deskpins.

It comes with a drawback though. FileBox eXtender's pin cannot attach to some skinned windows, DOS command windows or most of the modern app windows like the Calculator app in Windows 10.

In addition to setting on-top, it has other features such as roll-up windows, easy access to favourite and recent folders or documents with a click on Windows Explorer or a file open/save dialogue box. These features can be disabled if you do not need them.

Hi, I've used this for years, but ever since I had a laptop with 1920x1080 resolution, if I use the recommended 125% setting, for a good number of programs (not all) the buttons shift from the title bar if the window is moved from the top left corner of the screen.

If I use 100% setting, where text appears somewhat small on my 15.6" screen, all is well.
