Always on top!

Having multiple open windows on our desktop can be confusing but DeskPins is here to help its users with management and increase their productivity. It is a helpful tool that will let you pin your most important windows on top of your other open applications to make it accessible at all times.

Know your priorities

DeskPins helps a lot in putting your priority applications above your other windows that are also open in your desktop. Pinning them on top not only makes it accessible but it also saves you the time from having to dig through the numerous tabs you are using. This is the best way to avoid your most important tasks from being buried underneath open documents, files, browsers, and other programs. To make things better, DeskPins allows you to pin more than 1 window or application so you can have 2 or more programs simultaneously floating above the others. You can just keep on adding as many programs as you want. In our opinion, DeskPins is best used for keeping small programs like timers and calendars above larger applications that can easily cover them. The tool is very easy to use and lets you add programs without any complications. Removing them is also just one click away. The add and remove buttons appear in the app’s neat interface under the Autopin tab. Other functions can also be easily accessed such as Pins management and assigning Hotkeys or shortcuts. 

 Great for multitasking 

DeskPins makes work easier for people in a lot of ways. Aside from the convenience that it brings by pinning important windows on top, its simplicity and straightforwardness make it friendly to all users. You do not have to have to be a professional or expert in technology or programs in order to utilize this tool. DeskPins is a simple program that lets you get your job done faster.
