Windows 7: Stack/Suite Launcher

Stack/Suite Launcher

Does anyone know if there's a way to create a launcher and pin it to the taskbar? I'd like a way to collect Suite apps (like CS4, Office, etc) into a stack-like launcher to declutter the taskbar. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Note: I tried pinning a folder to the taskbar with shortcuts inside, and all that happens is it gets pinned to explorer's jump list.

Do you mean like a quick launch toolbar?

Sort of. I mean something more like combining that into a jump list. So I click the icon on the taskbar, a list pops up like a stack, and has shortcuts to applications. I'd like to have say an Office icon, click on it and have a stack of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc

It seems like with the jump lists it should be easy to do, I just can't figure out how.

EDIT: I think I've found something, haven't installed or tried it yet but it's a step in the right direction. Just wish it was official...
Use OS X like stack in Windows 7!

Yes, this is sort of what I was looking for. Just really wish it was built-in. Is there a way to make a custom jump list?

Thanks for trying, but no that's not what I'd like. I know how to do the quick launch thing, and that would work, except I'd like to launch it from an icon that's pinned to the taskbar.
