Keeping Bridge Always On Top
The idea behind Bridge is to use it to manage all your images for all your programs, and if you’re doing just that, you’ll definitely want to know how to keep Bridge up front, and floating above whichever program you currently have open. First, click on the Switch to Compact Mode icon that appears in the upper-right corner of Bridge’s Options Bar. Then, once it switches to Compact Mode, a new icon will now appear to the left of that icon—the Switch to Ultra-Compact Mode icon (I kid you not). If you use either Compact Mode, Bridge will remain at the foreground just like a floating palette, no matter which program you’re using. To stop the floating, just click on the Switch to Full Mode icon (which had been the Compact Mode icon—it changes its function depending on the mode you’re using—I know, it’s confusing).
