The above link points to an article describing how to dock toolbars to the edges of the screen in Vista.

I have tried using the same technique in Windows 7 but I can't seem to get it to work.
I have used the new option to dock the task bar on the side and top edges (not at the same time !!) and would like to be able to have different toolbars on different edges.

Any thoughts or suggestions please

According to Floating Deskbands were removed from Windows 7 with a reference to an official Microsoft Blog as the source.
I would have to agree with the idea to remove that as the new launching features of Windows 7 should work far better but it does suck having a feature you are used to using removed. The sidebar part of Windows Sidebar was removed in Windows 7 and I have yet to figure out what the replacement for it is even suppose to be.
