You could add ObjectDock to the desktop.

If I had a choice, I wouldn't even have the start menu in Windows 7... all I use it for is to shut down (would much rather have a pinned application in the taskbar that does the same thing) and as another method to bring up My Computer (Explorer already has a spot on my taskbar). Different ways of launching programs still bugs me, because while it's more organized, the programs being launched from the jumplist or using 7stacks are still unpinned and mess with my otherwise pleasant taskbar setup.

Which is why I want the whole Microsoft Office suite to live in only 1 spot on my taskbar, instead of needing a spot for Word and Excel and Access and Powerpoint. And if I need 2 or 3 of those open at the same time? That's a big chunk of the taskbar being used by them. With the way the taskbar is set up, you'd think Microsoft could've come up with some way to group similar Suite programs like that together and live in 1 spot of the taskbar, even if they're all open at the same time.

I think my problem is that I love the new taskbar too much lol. I don't want to leave any program I have unpinned. Doesn't it annoy you when unpinned applications pop up and mess with your filled-up taskbar, or perhaps even send the taskbar to a new row?

My question is ......And I`m not being rude but Come On! how often do you use a program ??? I work for 5 different companys plus my own. You really need to sit down at your pc and prioratize. How often do you use Word , how often do you use Excel, and so on. I bet you can do it. This pic doesn`t even show the object dock.

Hello Dreakon.



You may want to have a look at the tutorial at the link below, I haven't "played" with it but you may be able to pin it to the taskbar.
