WindowFloating

As of Version 13.3, WindowFloating is no longer supported, as many operating systems constrain whether or not a window floats to its window frame. See WindowFrame for window frame types.

WindowFloating

is a notebook option that specifies whether the window for the notebook should float on top of other windows when it is displayed on the screen.

Details

  • WindowFloating has various incompatibilities with modern operating systems.
