Microsoft open-sourced the Windows Calculator app earlier this
year and the Redmond firm has been inviting independent devs to
contribute to the essential tool.
The development of Calculator has advanced after this move and
Microsoft recently announced Always on Top mode for the
Always on Top mode for Windows Calculator will allow you to
keep the app’s window always on top of your other apps such as
Microsoft Edge and Excel. Always on top is also available for
Windows Task Manager and it basically lets you do your
calculating operations easily without having to open the app
from the taskbar again and again.
Today, Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring are receiving a new
update for Windows Calculator with the new Always on Top mode.
The update adds a ‘Always on Top’ option to the left side of
the app’s window.
Additionally, this feature also brings a mini mode to
Calculator. After enabling the Always on Top mode, the
Calculator will shrink its interface and offer the essential
features on the screen. It is particularly useful if you’re
working with multiple apps and you don’t want Calculator to
occupy entire screen space.
