I’ve noticed an issue using Krohnkite - use Super+W to maximise the window. If you have it in your decoration, you’ll see the ‘always on top’ button enabled. It stays enabled when you restore. This is a pain for Firefox with no titlebar (it stays on top permanently even if you maximise and unmaximise it).
With GIMP it’s a problem because the preferences window opens hidden behind the pinned main window.
Is there any way to control this? I don’t want ‘always on top’ being enabled… it means I couldn’t pull a dolphin window to the front to drag and drop a file, for example.
You need to set the Options like this
Restart the session after that.
Then you can manually set what window to
No, my settings already look that way.
I am unable to stop windows being
always on top after having been maximised. It seems to be the way Krohnkite works and not something affected by settings…
Windows i have maximized do not stay on top.
This are my Rules:
This are my active Layouts:
Nothing else is enabled. The geometry is not important for our case here.
Wow, spiral layout - interesting.
I’m curious if I have set this somewhere else. Hmmm maybe I should go make a new user and play around some more if this isn’t normal.
Plasma settings goes deep - I can’t find this in kwin or in krohnkite settings.
No window rules or anything…
But I see ‘spiral’ in my ‘test’ user, so I’m sure it’s something in my .dot files - maybe time to rename some folders.
Thx - I’ll report back when I nail it down.
Wow. I did -Rns and installed via settings - but no settings for krohnkite appeared, so I removed it and opened terminal starting with -Rns.

NOW I have spiral… interesting layout. I can’t imagine why I didn’t have it before…
I need to exclude settings, as that window always misbehaves; though I generally ‘F11’ it to a new desktop.
Right now I can maximise it and unmaximise - no problem.
However, now when I cycle to Floating (Meta + ) when I get to floating, everything is set to be always on top… So then I went back to the settings (set Floating windows on top) and this time when I unset this option, it returned to what I previously wanted.
So in the end it’s solved - but beyond a ghost in the machine I can’t really say why.
I’ll mark you for the solution, your screenshots led me to the answer in the end Thank you.
