I would like to see the remote chatbox on top of every window. Right now, user has to open window to view the chat message. So, it will be better when i send message on chat, then the chat window should appear on top of every window like media player, RDP, or any other software.

I moved this topic to Feature requests forum.

In previous versions the chat window used to pop up whenever a new message came in. Many users actually requested to fix that and make the chat window a normal window that only blinks on the toolbar when new message arrives. Here's what they wrote, for example:

"start typing something in a document or browser and let a customer send a chat message to you, ur cursor will be in the chat window interrupting your typing."

If the remote host is watching any video or if have took the remote system on RDP and when i sends any message through chatbox, then user doesnot know about the reception of the message i sent because it remains hidden in back.

So, better if any chatbox in the side of the screen must appear with the message i sent as happened in other remote viewing softwares. This way, it doesn't interrupt the remote host & the message will be visible to the remote user also.

Hello harshit,

Thank you for your suggestion.

We will consider adding this feature as an option. So user will be able to enable/disable it depending on the desired behavior.

Don't hesitate to ask me, if you have any questions.
