How to enable to highlight a program on top of my 1 desktop?

Do you want to highlight a program on your Windows 10 computer? So you will not be distracted by any other programs or content on your computer. To get started, make sure you have installed the latest “Turn Off the Lights for Desktop” software on your Windows computer. Furthermore, the setup is pretty easy, click on the download button in the Microsoft Store. And it installs automatically this app. Then you see below in the taskbar a white lamp icon, that is visible left of your clock.
