Possible to remove all overlays?

I'd like to open a new browser window, and have it just take up a small section of my screen in the corner of my monitor, with my geographical area displayed with the layer(s) I want to see. This window will auto-refresh using the chrome extension once per hour or so. However, when I start shrinking the browser window, all of the overlays begin stacking up on top of each other, eventually leading to the map and the data not really being visible at all.
Is there a way to turn off all of the overlays?
@jrowland Hi, if you want to hide controls, it is not possible on the regular web page. But there is another trick. You can use our embedded page. It allows you to hide all the controls. You can do it with following steps:
- Open menu (three bars in the upper left corner)
- Select "Tools/menu"
- Select "Embed widget on page" and then "Animated map"
- Now you should see the form with embed settings. You can customize the view and also check "hide controls" (thats exactly what you want)
- Now comes the magic. If you are skilled in web development, you can copy-paste the iframe code in the bottom of the screen to your web page. If you are not, just copy the text between quotation marks that follows src= part of the code and paste it to your browser address bar.
Example of the copy-pasted text: https://embed.windy.com/embed2.html?lat=29.037&lon=-95.339&zoom=6&level=surface&overlay=wind&menu=true&message=&marker=&forecast=12&calendar=now&location=coordinates&type=map&actualGrid=&metricWind=kt&metricTemp=°C
