Not in the way that you describe. As a workaround you could
temporarily remove the narrowing cookies <10>. Take care of not
breaking a TBLFM when moving a whole row with all cookies out of the
table, in this case e. g. keep an empty row.

There is "C-u C-u C-c `" (`org-table-edit-field') to fully view and
optionally edit field by field one field at a time in a separate
window described in (info "(org) Built-in table editor").
