Windows 7: Is it possible: quick launch on top, taskbar on bottom?

Is it possible: quick launch on top, taskbar on bottom?

Hello,

My friend is coming from XP and has his quick launch toolbar on the top of the desktop and his taskbar on the bottom.

I know there is a hack to (kind of) enable the quick launch menu, but is it possible to get it separate from the taskbar?

He would like to avoid using something like a dock program. See the attached pic for an example.

Thanks,
Brian

Sorry, I don't think you can do that natively in Win 7.

It has been sought afer in a few threads here. No solution found to date. Third party dock required.

Thanks both of you. I searched but only found people asking about enabling the quick launch, not moving it. I'll let him know.
