Toolbar??

Hello folks. I'm new here. Got to say you have a very nice forum here.

I have a rather simple question regarding Windows 7. Currently I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate but have an ability to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. As I remember, from playing around at some store, I wasn't able to create toolbar of "My Computer". If you refer to a shot, you very might be able to understand what bar I mean. How do I create this bar in Windows 7??

Here is a shot of what I have now in Windows Vista



Thank You For The Help

Welcome aboard.

Windows 7 doesn't have the ability of making a toolbar (like you have there in your screenshot) out of a folder, with dragging and dropping it to the side of the screen like XP and Vista do. They took it out. Have a look thru the tutorial section, you might find different options that will work out for you.

Thanx for your help. Did a search for "Toolbar" in that section of a forum, but I don't see anything. Can you suggest anything?? But you do understand what I want, right?? Thank You

you might be able to make a custom "My Computer" bar with Rainmeter just manually importing the folders you want to show and extend your taskbar out, and then just stick your "always on top" rainmeter bar all the way to the left.

Let me know if you need more help!
Thanks,

Hello Ilyabyk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but the Desktop Toolbar feature from Vista has been removed in Windows 7.

You could use the Fences, Nexus,RocketDock, or 7stacks free programs instead though for this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My toolbar has simple shortcuts to all of drives connected to my PC. PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE SHOT PRIOR TO SUGGESTING SOMETHING TO ME. The bar is very simple and much simplier to any bars offered above.
THANK YOU
