    How to Enable or Disable Windows Terminal Always On Top in Windows 10


    The Windows Terminal is a modern, fast, efficient, powerful, and productive terminal application for users of command-line tools and shells like Command Prompt, PowerShell, and WSL. Its main features include multiple tabs, panes, Unicode and UTF-8 character support, a GPU accelerated text rendering engine, and custom themes, styles, and configurations.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 21337, Windows Terminal is now an inbox app.

    If you enable always on top mode in Windows Terminal, Windows Terminal windows will launch and stay on top of all other windows on the desktop.

    Hello,

    I suppose you could create a shortcut to the app, assign a keyboard shortcut to the shortcut, and leave the shortcut on your desktop, Start menu, or taskbar. It will only open the app though.
