Windows 7: Can I get a shortcut to the Time/Calendar popup window

Can I get a shortcut to the Time/Calendar popup window

Only way to access it seems to be by clicking on the clock in the system tray. And it disappears too when lost focus. Is there any other way to get this window and to keep it open?

Mine stays until you click it again and it stays on top of windows.

Mine stays too *until* it loosed focus, like if I click anywhere other than on it. It behaves more like a pop-up than a regular window that stays open even if in the background which I was hoping to be more like. That way I could access it with keyboard (alt-tab).

You can do it with the timedate.cpl, but the actual time/calendar, I don't know how.

Not what you wanted, but have a look at Time 2nd from bottom in left column.

I think this guy has written some code in c# which does exactly this. Problem is though that I just don't know what to do with the bare c# code.
