Is there a way to set a Delphi 10 application to remain visible on the bottom or on the left side of the screen and any other application maximize leaving it visible, Just like the taskbar wjth autohide set off?
Best Regards

Hi Linden, but fsStayOnTop property does not prevent other windows to cover it's area.
I want to show other windows to show side on side with my app.

What you want is called an application desktop toolbar. You can find a
code snippet for example on StackOverflow:
