I found DeskPins to be somewhat confusing. I do not feel as though there was enough visual content to support the idea of what the product actually does. I do like that it is a free application which may make someone more apt to try it.
Deskpins is a valuable free application the lets users keep there most important applications pinned while using windows. There is no limit to the amount of pins the user can use and it is intelligence based. It is compatible with most windows versions and works with hotkeys as well. They can be easily removed if needed. Deskpins is a wonderful free application.
Wow! DeskPins has completely streamlined my overall user experience on my laptop! The apps I use the most are on the top and the least are positioned to the bottom. The interface is so easy to use, it becomes second nature in no time. I recommend this application to anyone who wants to simplify and enhance their desktop experience.
This is an application used to keep an application at the top. It is known to be identical to the "Always on top" function. This is a new user friendly as well. Ideal for anyone who wants to keep an application on top of their other windows.

It's good for multitasking on windows OS, however some of the cons such as not compatible for old versions, windows vista or other older OS. This software is a great multitasking tool to prioritize task by pinning it. In this time, I don't think anyone might be using older version of windows below windows 7, So, it's great tool for those who work on different tasks at the same time...
DeskPins for Windows is a software that allows you to pin multiple times and keep the screens at visual whenever you want it is clever and handles more than one task at the time
This can be used for any application topmost. This helps keeps a lot of applications up and available so people have better luck organizing things on their computer. This is a very helpful platform for people with windows computers and such. I think it is not usable for people with macbooks and apple products. Running this application on windows 10 is probably the best bet due to the fact that it is the most updated system at the moment
DeskPins is a lightweight Windows application that can constrain running projects to keep steady over others. Fundamentally a freeware device that brings "Consistently on Top" usefulness to any product arrangement on your PC, DeskPins is extremely simple to utilize, making supposed "pins" to keeps applications on top. When you dispatch it, DeskPins places a symbol in the Windows System Tray that allows you in a flash to empower the application and hence embed another symbol in the titlebar of each running interaction to assist you with keeping it on top. Despite the fact that it might sound a bit troublesome, DeskPins is focused on the two novices and more experienced clients, with a couple of settings to play with accessible in the "Choices" screen.
