Default Best way to hold windows in place?

So i modded a case and put a window in the top of my case as well as CD drive so you can see it operating. However, I cant get my window to stick to my case! I have tried super glue, tape (works for a while then falls), and caulk. Any other ideas?

The best way to hold it in is window molding,You can pick it up at some of the bigger computer place's,Atleast if you use the moldind it won't look like crap the way that screw's do,Try to find some like this.

Default Re:

...don't those window molding things go completely around the window panel edge, and fit to the case edge???
