"dismissing" popup window with "Disconnect" button on J1 without actually disconnecting

In an older firmware, I could control the printer (like to clear a nozzle clog) without hitting the disconnect button to clear the popup window because it would not persist. Is there any way to force this condition?

It was lovely for a time being able to control the printer from either PC or touchscreen without interruption. My printer is at the opposite end of my house from my computer, so it’s actually quite annoying to have to connect/disconnect continuously when I’m printing either a model or filament that’s prone to clogging. The biggest reason is that nozzles cool down when printing pauses, so I use the app to save myself an extra trip across the house to tell the nozzles to warm up again, which takes a few minutes.
