Windows 7: Looking for a gadget

Looking for a gadget

Just looking at the many different types of shortcuts on my desktop sometimes drives me to do anything to hide the desktop with a full screen window. I'm not sure if either I heard of it or seen it from somewhere, but does anyone know if there's a gadget that you can place on your desktop. I think it had some kind of circular shape and when you hover or left click on it, there would be pop-ups of shortcuts around it, not a big folder pop-up but rather many smaller files orbiting the circular gadget. Like with Windows 7 you hover your mouse over a grouped task-bar item and different windows (that is if you had more than one windows of the same program open) and you can select one?

What I don't want is having to open a full screen window to access different types of shortcuts. I was hoping that I can put two or three of these gadgets onto my desktop, one be for many software shortcuts, one for many game shortcuts, and one for many bookmarked shortcuts.

I hope someone seen it before :O
