Metadata window - Stay on top

When filling out metadata for my books, sometimes I look information up in my browser. It would be helpful to keep the metadata window on top.

I do have a program that adds a 'stay on top' button to most windows, but it doesn't detect the metadata window.

I just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something obvious.

I use Actual Title Buttons (ATB). Its Stay on Top feature is available on all the calibre windows.

Does your utility have window exclusion settings, if it does perhaps you've inadvertently excluded the MDE window.

I use 4t Tray Minimizer Free.

I actually just checked the exclusions. I noticed two for MDI child windows and dialogs, and unchecking them both made the buttons appear.

Thank you.
