|Hint: The application help window will always display on top (in front of) all other application
windows when invoked directly from the application (via F1 key or the Help menu) and eventually overlap them. To have
help window be freely switchable via desktop manager (which will allow you to bring the application windows to front)
you shall start the application help from the windows start menu instead (Start-All Programs-AnTherm-Help) and browse the
contents manually to the chapter of your choice.
With the application setting "Help Window shown TopMost"
the user can decide if the Help window will be shown topmost to all application windows and automatically minimize with the
application (which is the windows default behaviour) or it can be set behind the application window via typical desktop window
manager (default application setting).
