DeskPins is a terribly simple program that helps you prioritize your desktop pins.

There's not much to this program but there doesn't need to be. It is what it is and does what it says it does with few frills in between. Then again, there also aren't any distractions or unwelcome additions to your desktop that you don't want, either; something that often comes with bloated software "features" that don't accomplish much. Desktop users should appreciate the beautiful simplicity of this program.

Once installed on your desktop, DeskPins installs an icon right in your system tray. This is the entirety of things you need to see in order to use this program. If you have a particularly important window that you always want to be first, you click on the DeskPins icon which in turn makes your cursor into a pin. Left click onto a window to attach that pin. You're all set. Now, that particular window is always going to stay on top.

There's no limit to the amount of pins you can use. It doesn't matter how many windows you have or anything else, you're going to be able to continue creating pins infinitely. It's one of those small, tiny programs that does a simple job and does it well.


  • Prioritize your important windows with DeskPins
  • Install and use with no learning curve
  • Very useful for people who browse the Internet or work online


  • There just aren't any features to it. It's more of a utility.

If you need something like this but also want additional features, there's very little chance that DeskPins will ever evolve into something more multifaceted. If you're happy with what you read here, you're going to love this neat little program.
