How to Turn on “Always on Top” for Windows 10’s Task Manager

Windows 10 Task Manager icon

The Task Manager is an operating system component found in all versions of Microsoft Windows since Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000. It allows you to view each of the tasks (processes) and the overall performance of the computer. Using the Task Manager, you can view how much memory a program is using, stop a frozen program, and view available system resources.

Task Manager is an indispensable tool in Windows 10, and it’s good to keep it handy while troubleshooting your PC. With one simple setting, Task Manager will always remain visible on screen—no matter how many windows you have open. Here’s how.

First, we need to bring up Task Manager. In Windows 10, right-click the taskbar, and select “Task Manager” from the menu that pops up.

Right-click on the taskbar and select "Task Manager."

If you see the simple Task Manager interface, click “More Details” at the bottom of the window.

In Task Manager, click "More details."

In the full Task Manager window, click Options > Always on Top to activate always-on-top mode. A checkbox will appear to the left of the option.

In Windows 10 Task Manager, click "Always on Top" in the "Options" menu.

After that, the Task Manager window will always stay on top of all open windows.

The feature will stay activated even if you close Task Manager and reopen it again. And if you’d like to disable the “Always on Top” feature later, simply uncheck the item in the “Options” menu. Very handy!
