Windows 7: Shortcut Bars?

Shortcut Bars?

In XP it was dead easy, and really convenient to create single click shortcuts on a menu bar. These bars could then be dragged to any side of the screen.

Is there any way of doing something similar in Windows7?

Thanks

Have you tried right-clicking on an unused part of the Taskbar, click "Toolbars", click "New Toolbar"?

That just clutters an already cluttered area. I'm looking to create side or top bar menus as before.

I use RocketDock to do what you want. Its free and it works quite well with Windows 7.

Creating a shortcut without - shortcut written after the original name
as the titel declares, is there any patch or something to make Windows 7 shortcuts not rename theirselves to "application.exe - shortcut" but rename theirselves into just "application.exe"? I find it very annoying having to erase " - shortcut" from the name all the time.
