Try this:
  1. Right-click an unused part of your Task Bar, click "Toolbars", then "New Toolbar..."
  2. In the left pane of the dialog that opens, click "Computer"
  3. Click "Select Folder"
The above will add a Computer toolbar to the taskbar, although I don't see a way of moving it off the taskbar...

If I understand you correctly, I'm afraid that feature is gone in seven.

You might want to look at this and see it helps,

Otherwise there's objectdock,

Or rocketdock,
