Yeah I've gone down the 'making it like vista' route... I'm not sure if its a good thing or not, I should have really given myself time to get to know the new docking taskbar and whatnot...

I may give it a chance soon...

Look into 7Stacks and StandaloneStack, these allow you to create a "menu" of programs that are accessed via a single icon pinned to the Windows 7 taskbar.

StandaloneStack
looks and works like the stacks in MacOS, where 7Stacks looks more like a built-in windows feature, and it supports transparency.

I created one for MS-Office, and another for video editing/conversion. All told, about 20 programs from 2 icons.

I did have a play with 7stacks and StandaloneStack but I didn't get on with them... I can't remember which it was, but one of them wouldn't work everytime I clicked a stack, I'd be there clicking a few times before it'd come up...

I might have to give it a 2nd chance, I feel like a bit of loser clinging to an XP/Vista style layout

Quick Launch ?
Hi. I want to have the shortcuts be placed ON the taskbar as shown in the screendump attached to this query. I have read about quick launch here on the forum, but I cannot get the dotted bar at the right of the start be moved. How can I solve the problem ?

Quick Launch
When I take the Quick Launch bar off the taskbar, and then put it back on, all the icons are organized completely different. Is there any way to make it always stay the same?
Customization
Quick Launch bar
MS seem to have decided that their "pin applications to the taskbar" feature is a much better solution than the Quick Launch bar - otherwise surley they would not have annoyed all those who have been using the Quick Launch bar for years by removing it... I am getting used to the new taskbar in...

Quick Launch Bar
I heard that the Quick Launch Bar has been removed in Windows 7. I sure hope that isn't true. Maybe someone will write a third party app to replace it. I use it over a hundred times a day. I would miss it greatly.
