[Manifest] Allow topmost in Desktop & On top of any window

Feature Description:

Currently, the extension_window_data.topmost manifest flag only supports showing a window on top of other overwolf windows in game.

When recording on desktop, the topmost flag doesn’t do anything.

We would like that the topmost flag (or an equivilant flag) will allow us to make our window the topmost window of all windwos (not only overlwolf based)

impact for my app:

low

What is your current pain point?

users that use our screen recorder forget that they are actively recording

What do you have in mind to solve it?

Hi Shir!
After some testing, it appears that this can currently be achieved, although not necessarily using a manifest flag.
Using the window’s id, it is possible to invoke [overwolf.windows.setTopMost()](https://VM976:2 Window_Extension_bebanicmemnmpcomjjlnjkeionhgkkdgfdocgdam_main), which will keep it as the top window even when compared to non-overwolf-related windows.

Hope that helps!
