Problems disabling always on top

Post by paul1965 » Mon Sep 03, 2018 5:13 pm

Hi, I created a couple of new slide shows, but I'm having issues getting always on top disabled when they're running. It seems to work fine on the regular .scr file, but none of the .gss files work. I prefer to manually run the screen saver, then use Alt+Tab to toggle between whatever else I have open. I tried a complete reinstall of GPS Pro, deleted the previous registry entry that disabled always on top, rebooted and merged it again. But it still only works when the main .scr is launched. Is there another way of disabling always on top?

Hello,
gPhotoShow v7 uses two registry settings to disable always-on-top feature, one for the screen saver and another one for the slideshow maker. I attached reg files for both:
AlwaysOnTop.zip
(447 Bytes) Downloaded 10 times
AlwaysOnTopSS.zip
(531 Bytes) Downloaded 14 times
Use AlwaysOnTop.zip for the slideshow maker and AlwaysOnTopSS.zip for the screen saver

Thanks, that's what I needed! Would it be possible to make that an option within GPS Pro instead of having to add to the registry?
