You can't do it in Windows 7. They took that particular ability out of it.

As an alternative to the Vista functionality you may be able to use a desktop gadget - have a look at this one here ....

Hello DaYiM,

In addition, you could use a free program like Fences to have a desktop dock/toolbar if you like though. It still will not remove the taskbar though.

Hope this helps,
