Welcome BBolden:
The flashing needs to begin at the top of the wall, up under the overhang and extend down and out over the top of the window. One of those fancy copper tops would look good on it, if you have the room.

Hello BBolden:
Flashing is typically nailed or screwed in place. But then, you have to cover the heads to keep them from leaking.
Evidently you are working on top of some sort of finished wall; in that case I would recommend Contech PL400 adhesive.

Hello Brenda:
Yes, the PL 400 is a water-proof, construction adhesive. Just keep it where it will be covered with the flashing; the color won't match if it is exposed.
