Is there some 'key' that can be added to the registry, to cause GTalk t
be in the foreground WHENEVER it is launched

I don't think there is any way in Windows to set "always on top" for a
program, but there are some free third party utilities that will do it.
I use "DeskPins." I can't find an original source site, but it is
available at most popular freeware sites, like Snapfiles.

Sad to say Deskpins, just like 'Windows on Top' and 'Always on Top'
does not survive a reboot. I would really like to make 'being in th
foreground' a PERMANENT feature of GTalk

Have you put in a feature request to the folks at GTalk?

Well, cheer up because you are wrong (maybe). Look at the Autopins
feature under Options. It works for some programs but not for others. I
won't go into detail here. That is what the Help files are for.

That does indeed cheer me up, and I will have a second look. Thank you.

Char Jackson - No, I have not asked Google for that feature, but I gues
it is an option

I have now had a look at it again, and indeed found the Autopins.
agree with you Dave that there is potential for getting the desire
result from that. However, Crash, filling in the available entries woul
be sheer guess work, so I emailed the 'author' for help, and had th
email returned to me as undeliverable. If YOU, Dummy, were to have
clue as to how to proceed with AUTOPINS, and would guide me, it would b
much appreciated, and I think a great boon to the users of GTalk, apar
from me

I have followed the advice in the Help File to the extent that I could
by putting a name of my choice for 'description; '*' for the differen
contacts that I might have for the edited version of 'type', whos
original was obtained by dragging the icon from beside 'type' to th
window on interest; likewise 'chat window' was extracted by dragging th
'class' icon to the window. But alas NO improvement - still does no
survive reboot
