Windows 7: Is it possible to get a context menu to linger after losing focus?

Windows 7 32 bit
Is it possible to get a context menu to linger after losing focus?

A context menu will disappear if you click something else, in Windows (IAW, it disappears when it loses focus). Is there a way to have a context menu to not disappear for a few seconds after clicking something else?

I don't believe so. I have searched for "Increase context menu display time", etc. As you might imagine, any tricks are actually to speed up menu displays, and almost always opening speed. I could find no tricks to change context menu display speeds at all. Only fixes for slow opening. A Guy
