This is something you can use in Windows XP as well.

If you check the old desktop thread ( I think desktop 2006) you will see plenty of desktops with that. If you look at my winxp d'tops, you will also see it.

The best current app is called OBJECTDOCK.

It is free but there is a pay version with a lot more features. No spy-ware.

www.deviantart.com to get additional icons. Ping me if you need help using this tool.

On OSX its just called the dock. IMO its annoying (if you need that, use the quicklaunch thing IMO) but there are plenty of "dock" mods out there for XP and vista.

Fyi, here is the old thread.

If you look about half-way through it (actually, just use the search function) a lot of the users have posted apps they use for various things but Objectdock is the only CURRENTLY used app which is still being developed that is any good and stable.

y'z dock was the other tool.
