Windows 7: Keep flyout open even when focus is lost

Keep flyout open even when focus is lost

Is there any way to do this? Sometimes, it's necessary to click elsewhere and keep the gadget flyout open, but this causes it to close and lose all the information.

Any suggestions?

I don't know of anyway this is possible, certainly not with a gadget not written that way. Most gadgets that remain large, have a size option instead. Unless a gadget is written to work that way, it isn't possible. A Guy
