O.P. Desktop Contact Suggestion
Hi, I've a suggestion for the floating contacts that I would find very useful. I haven't searched (sorry) because I'm in a hurry.

Occasionally a desktop contact is covering something such as the minimize/maximize/close buttons or something else which may need to be clicked. Rather than having to move the desktop contact to be able to click the item behind it, it would be very useful if a key could be pressed (i.e CTRL or Shift) that when the cursor hovers over the floating contact it overrides the default highlight and effectively 'ignores' that it is there...therefore being able to click on the desired item behind.

Can this be done?

Only problem with that is that you can't see them all the time... I like the idea.... if it's possible that'd be really sweet! I love desktop contacts, but I also hate having to move my things around just to click something, cause I have my desktop contacts "locked in place"... lol.

Before I go to bed (and thus I don't have the time to post all the links, but I want to say this before this thread repeats everything): This has already been asked and discussed before. So if you want to re-discuss this, please find the previous thread(s) ;)

I've just got back (and am no longer in such a hurry :P) and have found this thread that suggests exactly the same thing. However, there are no solutions.
