According to Microsoft, to pin the board open, simply click the pin icon in the top right corner of the board. Once your board is pinned open, the widgets board will no longer light dismiss.

While the board is pinned, you can still close it by:

  • Open the widgets board via the Widgets button on the taskbar.
  • Pressing the ESC key while Widgets is in the foreground.
  • Swiping on the left edge of the screen if you have a touch device.

However, for now, this only works if you’re in the Windows Insider Program.

And, according to Windows enthusiast, @PhantomOfEarth, to be able to see this feature you need to:

  1. Install the latest Windows Web Experience Pack version.
  2. Run the following command: vivetool /enable /id:43636169
