As far as the toolbar dock area on the right, MS mentioned they specifically locked 3rd parties out from having access to that area. The reason was they focused on putting icons over there and kept them white by default. In the event anything goes wrong, they turn colors and thus draw attention. They wanted to keep everybody and their brother from creating colorful icons and cluttering up that area...which I can appreciate as that area is usually a rainbow of shapes, sizes, colors, etc. It's just overwhelming.

That's my understanding of what you are seeing.

Hello Brent,

Q1) You might see if this may work for you as a workaround.

Q2) While the desktop dock has been removed in Windows 7, you might consider something like Fences, RocketDock, or Nexus instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Have you tried jump lists..? I know it does not match what you are used to, but configured correctly, they can be very effective..
