One Small Problem with windows 7

Post by dgood » Mon Feb 22, 2010 1:38 am

You cannot create a toolbar by dragging a folder to the side or top of your desktop and have it be it's own toolbar separate from the task-bar. In XP and Vista you could do this. Why remove the option. Some people used a my computer toolbar. I liked to create a folder for all the game shortcuts and then drag it to the right side of my screen and have it be on auto-hide. Then If I wanted to play a game I just roll over there and hit a shortcut and they are out of sight unless I want to play. Anyone know of a way to work around it and get one made?

cant you just right click on the toolbar and create a new one? I never did any of what you said above, so I didnt even know about it in other os's :)

Tool bars like that were dumped to make the pinning feature.

Not gonna get it with out a secondary program. Dell made one for their PC's call Dell Dock http://www.delldock.com/ made by Stardock

One of the things I hate they dumped was the Win Media Player toolbar. I used it you minimize webinars to so I could work and still watch when needed and not have to worry about bringing it to the front. Never fails I missed something. With the toolbar I could just glance down and see what I needed to and back to work.
