Floating Toolbar for Windows 7
Dear Computer Lady,
Seems like MSN decided to remove the ability for an individual to add toolbars as you could in XP & Vista. Know of any good program or way to add the Toolbars back. I used to have one on the left that had my Desktop icons like Word, Excel etc. It would disappear when I moved away.
I have been a fan for many years and have recommended you too many others.
Great Job. Gary
I have always used customized toolbars along the top and sometimes side of my desktop to hold shortcuts to my most frequently used programs. I find it much simpler than searching through the programs on my start menu.
When I first tried Windows 7, I was very disappointed to find that I could no longer create these custom toolbars using only Windows. I started to look around for a substitute, and at first I found only programs that work in 32-bit versions of Windows, but not the 64-bit version (which is what I am using).
I finally found a nice little program named Nexus that does exactly what I wanted it to do, and provides some nice customization tools as well. Nexus is a dock for windows. It provides fast access to my most frequently used programs. I can float the dock anywhere on my screen, and add as many programs as I want.
Nexus is part of Winstep Extreme. You can download a trial using this link:
For more information on the program, you can use this link:
If you want to install only Nexus, just click on the menu item on the left of the web page that says, Nexus.
